Shimmering Light Farm & Renewal Center

Founded as Seeking Common Ground in 1997, Shimmering Light Farm & Renewal Center has served thousands of people at our ecological farm, workshops, conferences, seasonal celebrations, retreats, and innovative community programs. Through all of our activities we strive to create an environment in which children and adults create participatory solutions to tough social and environmental challenges such as food insecurity, ecological degradation, chronic illness, and our disconnection from the Earth and each other. Together we preserve 30 acres of prime development land, work with natural systems via permaculture and biodynamics, grow and prepare nutrient-dense foods, make healing herbal remedies, utilize horticultural therapy and discover how each of our daily lifestyle choices impacts the ecological integrity of our planet. We also welcome individuals and groups to immerse for a day or a week and be renewed and inspired on retreat or eco-vacation. Here each of us discovers our unique contributions to a vibrant, resilient community that we can be hopeful in leaving to future generations.

We focus on: Education, The Environment

Where we are: Monroe, Ontario, Yates
