Definitely enjoyed the history of how they took the caravan to Tennessee. If you love the Tennessee rolling hills and farmland, definitely worth traveling to. Loved all I learned too during our nursing school visit about midwifery.

Cool place & historical icon. Hosts excellent permaculture & green building workshops. Some members still hold Sunday morning meditation together. All activities we found there hold true to the community's intent to shift the world to a more loving place.
