Together, John and Sandy parent two young adults, Maria and Jonathan, bike, honor the earth, work passionately, eat well and celebrate often, sharing the space with a couple of dogs, 2 goats and a flock of chickens. The Drescher-Lehmans moved to this place in 2000, where 8 families had each owned a cabin and an outhouse, and had celebrated their lives with God and each other for many years. The dream to continue that Presence in a contemplative way, while also making this their home, began to form the day they first walked the land and continues to expand with your presence and prayers offered here.
