All over the world, communities gather to bid farewell to the passing season and greet the next. We gather to send off our ancestors as they move to the next realm, and welcome newborns into this one. We teach our young ones about the water cycle early on–that rainfall from above feeds rivers below to bring health to our oceans while clouds inherit those vapors still lingering in our atmosphere. We turn nutrient-rich cover crops into soil to restore the fields that bear abundant food for us and other animal life. We compost!

Each revolution of these systems propels us onward. We are motivated and supplied with needed momentum, just as the wheels of a bicycle move us down a path. At Pie Ranch, we honor the cyclical patterns of time and knowledge, of joy and healing.
