This adorable little handknit gnome was one of my purchases last year. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find him anywhere...he might be up to some holiday mischief somewhere in my house.
The Fellowship Community, founded in 1966, is a community of all ages, centered around the care of the elderly. About 150 elderly, children and coworkers live in a rural setting of farm, woods and orchards about 30 miles north-west of New York City. Working and learning together in service to others and in caring for the earth is the central motif of the community life. Those who are interested in a path of self-development in the process of building and maintaining community might find this a place of interest.
