Ever wonder what’s at the end of the Earth? Well, now you know! You’ll find our Catholic Worker Farm -and yourself- here, tucked deep in a beautiful 97 acre holler off a winding country road. It’s anything but a dead-end. Life is teeming all around and it’s behooving to match its relaxed pace, especially on the mountain miles it takes to get here. No need to drive white-knuckled looking like a deer in headlights. Enjoy taking your time. We bet you’ll soon agree that, without these ancient hills among us, it would be way too crowded and noisy. As it is, we already have our fair share of natural neighbors, and the silence can be deafening.
We’ve found the source of Orchard Run’s stream waters to be the perfect place for an Appalachian E.C.O. Center, so, that’s what we do here: Education, Contemplation and Outreach in the context of creation. Take a break and join us for life-giving work in the community, meaningful meditation in the woods, open dialogue on spirituality and issues of justice, and peaceful actions for the people and the environment. After all, we believe these are means to fostering the type of society the Creator intended.
