We’Moon Land is a small non-profit residential womyn’s community.

We exist as a sanctuary for women and nature, and provide space for feminist retreats, workshops, and gatherings in celebration of womyn’s spirituality and culture.

Fundraising goals have been met for repairs to OMA! Thank you to all of the womyn who helped preserve our mother house!

Happy Winter Goddesses!

On Saturday we entered the new Chinese lunar year of the rabbit with the new moon. It was also Lunar Imbolc.
We are starting to plan the 2023 events and will have a newsletter out with more information soon.
Please contact wemoonland@gmail.com to RSVP for any events or over night stays except for the Wild Womyn events.
Imbolc Circle
Imbolc is the cross-quarter day halfway between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox. On Saturday, February 4 Eagle and Musawa will be priestessing a traditional Womyn’s Land “Rattle” Circle with the theme of Initiation. Gather at noon for potluck lunch, circle 1:30-3:30 pm.
As we pass the rattle around the circle, each wemoon has a turn to express whatever comes up for her (here and now!)…about what we are initiating in our lives at this time. We are the priestesses of our own lives. By tuning into the natural energy of this season, when new life begins to stir within the Earth, we can connect with what is stirring within ourselves. Putting our intentions to what we personally are inspired to energize in the growing cycle of this new year. With each wemoon’s rattle turn the energy spirals into the cauldron of our circle as we pass it on around and around. In the second round of passing the rattle we will raise energy together for what we would like to see happen collectively here in this community and initiating our intentions for this 50th year of We’Moon Land Community: Celebrating Resilience!
Garden Party
The Garden Team is forming anew this year: first planning meeting:
Saturday, January 28!  Gathering at noon. We will share a meal afterwards. 
If you are interested in being on the team or you might like to come out to the land to work in the garden from time to time: get on the list to be informed of garden workdays. All wemoon welcome, regardless of gardening experience! Contact: wemoonland@gmail.com (subject: Garden).
If you can’t make this one we will be having more as we move into spring and summer.

Happy Summer

We have had some great campouts that kicked off on July 4. A lot of love and work has gone into the land and womyn have donated from the wishlist! Thank you so much for all this abundance. We want to keep the ball rolling and added a work party for Saturday August 27. There is much to do on the land and all helping hands are welcomed.
We had the winter wood delivered recently and there are piles to be stacked all over the land. Last years wood needs to be delivered to Star house. A few outdoor projects to be done that include the never ending blackberry, tansy and scotch broom removal. Oma always has cleaning and organizing as well.
Because of the summer heat we will start earlier around 10am. Womyn can arrive before that or spend the night on Friday. The heat will be the main deciding factor of when we might stop for the day. We will have snacks and a meal to share at the end of the day.
The blackberries should be exploding and ready to be picked in 2 weeks! This picture is from the upper meadow. Some bushes already ripe closer to Oma.
Please RSVP if you want to come out for the day or overnight on Friday or Saturday. Indoor housing or camping is available. We need a meal count for the work party. Please email wemoonland@gmail.com
If you can’t make it up for the work party you are welcome to come up and visit at other times. Please email to let us know when you can visit for a day or overnight. It’s perfect camping weather!

We’Moon News

Hello Dear Ones!

We had a beautiful weekend at We’Moon homestead. On the new moon eclipse we had a work party and a Beltane ritual, which was very sweet and nurturing. We are now ramping up for the next work party!
Help us demolish an old trailer to make room for more womyn to enjoy womyns land! Join us Saturday, May 14 from 10-4 for a work party. We will provide snacks and a meal. We also need help with clearing blackberries and scotch broom. No experience required. We will provide the tools. But please bring your skills, gloves, equipment and water bottle if you have them! Some lighter indoor tasks, like spring cleaning Oma, are on the table as well.

 

Overnight camping or cabin stays are free for womyn who help out during the work party. Or you can donate $25-50 nightly for a cabin vacation or $15-25 for camping if you’d prefer to just hang out on the Land. No womyn turned away for lack of funds. If you are curious about womyns land, this is a great chance to see what it’s all about. If you love We’Moon and haven’t visited in a while, we’d love to see you again! Contact Nicole at wemoonland@gmail.com for details and to RSVP. We really want to get a count on how many womyn are coming for meal planning and more.

We’Moon Land first newsletter of the year!

Hi Womyn, 

We are starting to come out of our winter hibernation and covid shells. The long cold nights are shifting to longer days and warmer times. There has been so much change and transitions in all our lives in the last few years. We wanted to give an update about We’Moon homestead and what we are planning for the spring and summer seasons. Covid has had a big impact on the finances and activities on the land, and the resident community is shifting in many ways as we move forward. We are welcoming womyn in many different ways to participate in this process as we move toward collective ownership. From volunteering for a day, to becoming an ongoing resident of the land and community.

Covid policies are being reviewed on a monthly basis to keep the community and any visitors as safe and healthy as possible. If you are interested in visiting the land, please contact us and we can go over the most up to date protocols we are using.

At this time we have limited indoor stays in Yula and LaFern. We will be opening up to camping once the weather shifts. 

With inflation rising and changes in the world happening, we are increasing our sliding scale or overnight stays and use of Oma starting March 1st. 

Suggested sliding scale: more if you can, less if you can’t.
Camping $15-25
Indoor cabins when available $25-50
Our rates are still much lower in comparison to many locations and hope to allow any womyn who wants to visit a chance to stay.
