Winter Solstice Celebration at Genesis Farm

Spreading corn to honor the deer’s place in the ecosystem!

Miriam McGillis, friend of Tree Whispering® and Director of  Genesis Farm and Eco-Literacy Center in Blairstown, NJ, held an outdoor Winter Solstice Celebration today.

A key part of the ceremony honored the animals of the 240 acre property.

All participants dipped cups into a bowl of dried corn then were directed to scatter the corn along the deers’ paths in the forest.
