I am thrilled with how deeply these workshops touched women last year and grateful for how many volunteers are coming to make these Workshops possible.  Photos and detailed info on following pages.

Land Values ~ Please Note


This is Woman’s Space, a woman-loving environment.  We are Lesbians celebrating, creating and expanding space and possibilities for all women and also for Lesbian culture and community.

We are a wild plant and animal sanctuary and we honor this lands and the plant, animal and mineral peoples who live here.


We value caring and respectful interaction as we honor and celebrate each other.  To make this a nourishing environment for us all, we each take full responsibility for ourselves, communicate directly and with caring, and interact without drama or aggression.

Just as we live in harmony with the land and creatures, we live in harmony with each other and without weapons or sadomasochism display or practice.  We interact with equal caring for the Earth on this marvelous wild plant and animal preserve.

We value a Simple Living Philosophy.


Our constructions is nontoxic and green.  Our air and water are wonderfully pure.  To maintain this preciously healthy and healing environment, we ask you to leave all scented products at home.  We gladly provide unscented and natural home care as well as body care products for your use.

We value foods that are organic, whole, local and unprocessed.  Our meals are vegan with dairy on the side and occasional meat meals available.  Tasty is high on our list too, smile.

We interact from our authentic Selves, wanting to be present to each other, so we ask you to leave alcohol and illegal drugs at home.  We are considering a designated cigarette area removed from buildings and activities.

We are sorry that we cannot usually accommodate children.  With advance arrangements we can sometimes accommodate an animal companion.





This incredible Land & Experience encourage us into

our biggest, wisest, most authentic Selves.



We love sharing this amazing land with other women.

We would love to share with You!
