Why should I become a Ffynnon Member?
Through membership you are joining and supporting the goals of a community dedicated to fulfillIng the mission of Ffynnon; to provide a sanctuary where Art, Spirit and Nature meet.
Membership in the Ffynnon community is foundational. Your support, dedication, and participation become a part of the framework that creates and sustains the soul of Ffynnon - a beautiful, forested, private retreat center, where community comes together to connect, create art, inspire and educate each other, all while enjoying and preserving the harmony of nature.
Ffynnon is a tax-exempt, non-profit religious organization incorporated in the state of Oregon. Your sustaining membership is tax-deductible! Any goods or services as provided by your membership level are deducted from your contribution and an adjusted receipt will be provided at the end of each year.
Membership support not only helps purchase the tools and raw materials needed to physically build Ffynnon, it also helps create the spirit and personality of our woodland retreat; ensuring a place for all to enjoy for many, many years to come!
What can I do at Ffynnon?
Member Days - Come to the woods the first weekend of each month, to picnic in the Ffynnon meadows, walk the trails, watch wildlife, and deeply relax in the shelter of her forests.
Attend a Gathering - These gatherings vary, but often include musical or theatrical performances, community rituals and workshops, yoga, art and crafts and exhibits, workshops on foraging or other forest skills. Look for our Public Gatherings on the Events page and become a member today to access our Members Calendar.
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.
