Why should I become a Ffynnon Member?
By becoming a member of Ffynnon, you are joining a community that shares the desire to fulfill Ffynnon’s Mission. Your small support and participation now will help build the foundations of a beautiful, private retreat center, where together, we create art, inspire and educate each other, and preserve nature; a place to enjoy for many years to come.
Member support not only helps us purchase the tools and raw materials needed to physically build Ffynnon, but also helps create the spirit and personality of our woodland home.
What can I do at Ffynnon?
Come to the Woods - Ffynnon is open one weekend of each month for its Members to come and experience the woods. During this time, members may picnic in the Ffynnon meadows, walk her trails, watch her wildlife, and often camp in the shelter of her forests.
Attend a Shindig - These events will vary, but could include musical or theatrical performances, yoga classes, art and craft classes and exhibits, workshops on foraging or other forest skills. Look for new Shindigs on our events page.
Build and Create - Members have the unique opportunity to help build Ffynnon from the ground up, both physically and spiritually. It may seem a paradox, but maintaining a natural space takes a lot of hard work! All members are welcome for work party weekends, occasional events throughout the year where volunteers get down and dirty on one or two specific projects of importance to members.
