Tours & Wednesday Meditation
Thank you so much for wanting to visit Thistle Farms! We offer two options a week for tours.
1. Wednesdays at 9:00am: We begin with a meditation that is open to all in the community (arrive at 8:45 as we begin promptly at 9:00!). Tours are led by a Thistle Farms employee after the circle. The entire visit is usually about an hour. Although not mandatory, it will help us ensure your experience at Thistle Farms is memorable and rewarding if you can let us know you will be attending: RSVP here.
2. Mondays at 12:45pm: As these tours are provided as needed, please email email@example.com in advance to arrange. We encourage you to come early and have lunch at the Cafe!
If you or your organization would like a more thorough orientation, consider our Education Workshops. These all day immersion experiences are available monthly and you can learn more here.
General VisitingIf you'd just like to drop in, we welcome you to come by and shop at Thistle Farms during any open hours (M-F, 9:00am-4:00pm). Rita and Deborah run the front office and will be happy to help you. Or stop in at Thistle Stop Cafe (M-F, 8:00am-3:00pm, S, 8:00am-4:00pm), only two doors down, for a meal or a cup of tea. Please know that we love having visitors, but as a working business, we are often unable to offer last-minute tours.
Students & Research ProjectsIf you need information for a school project, here are a few options for you:
- We encourage you to take full advantage of the materials on this website, including videos and press features. You'll find answers to many basic questions as to how the organizations works. We also highly recommend visiting our blog. You'll find quotes and individual stories from residents and graduates there.
- You are also welcome to join us on for our Wednesday morning meditation (see general info above) or an Education Workshop.
- If you need additional information, email our PR Assistant, firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions. We will do our best to respond within a week, but allow 10-14 days just in case its a busy time!
Please visit our Volunteer page for further information.
