Spring is coming with many new adventures
A Precious Resource
We are exploring the possibility of an “in perpetuity” conservation easement for Little Pond’s 32 acres. What an affirmation of our original wildlands vision for Little Pond this will be if it comes to fruition. We’ll keep you posted! Meanwhile it is time to book space for your 2023 Spring, Summer and Fall Arts Retreats and Events. Dates are starting to be finalized, so please do go to our Facilities page to see what beautiful indoor and outdoor space Little Pond has to offer. Email [email protected] if you need more information or want to reserve dates.
The Last Play
On March 7 rehearsals begin for Anisa, Bill, and The Last Play. Back in April 2022, they gave a very moving work-in-progress performance for a small group of artists in our small Red Barn rehearsal space. Later this month, they open for four performances only at Touchstone Theatre – Fridays March 24 & 30 at 8pm and Sundays March 26 & April 2 at 2pm.
Performance creator Anisa George has shared the stage with her father, Bill George, since she was a baby. She’s 40 now; has he managed to teach her anything? What remains of the ten shows they’ve made together? And why is this the last play? Come share the stage with Bill and Anisa one final time, in a piece that is part retrospective, part inquisition, part shambolic dance party for the end of creation.

Lehigh Valley Mindful Growers
Anisa has started Mindful Growers – a monthly Lehigh Valley Meet-up at Little Pond. You can join the group at this link: https://www.meetup.com/lehigh-valley-mindful-growers/. The first session, “What is a Food Forest?” was in Febraury and the next session,”Feed your Food” is on Thursday March 9 at 5:30pm. Participants will take time to learn about nutrient cycles and participate in a skill building activity to calculate how much fertilizer a productive tree needs and how to feed it. Dress warm and bring your curiosity, work gloves, and a small dish to share for dinner once our work is done!
In this time of the Baha’i Fast – 19 days leading to the first day of Spring and the Baha’i New Year (Naw Ruz) on March 21, our monthly Devotional Gatherings in the Great Room of the Long Barn continue to bring together wonderful groups of visitors. Prayers, music, poetry and readings from sacred texts of many faiths are followed by conversation and refreshments. On Sunday March 12, we are delighted to welcome Bridget’s brother John E. Hare, Noah Porter Professor of Philosophical Theology at Yale University. He will talk briefly on Unity and the Holy Spirit, which is the topic of his latest book published by Oxford University Press. Please email [email protected] if you would like to be added to the invitation list for these monthly gatherings.
