Welcome To

Full Moon Rising Farm

We have hosted Farm and Wilderness Summer Camps for children since 1997. Children and adults enjoy the magical, rural setting on Whidbey Island, nestled on the edge of a vast forest between two bays. Art, nature, crafts, song, storytelling, archery, wood carving, fort building, yoga, games and so much more, all come together to teach the value of the environment, the impact of food choices, the stewardship of the land, and the kinship with the animals.

As I write this, tomorrow is February 2nd and marks the celebration of Imbolc, a traditional Gaelic festival welcoming spring. I often find this date more appropriate than March 20th to celebrate the change of season. For as I wonder about the farm today, it is obvious the earth is waking up from its winter slumber. Bulbs are poking up, emerging forth from the lush green earth, Snowdrops already scatter my front lawn and the Viburnum outside the living room window is in full blossom.  Once the March lambs are born, we know spring is in full swing, with summer gently blowing in on its tail.

Welcome to Full Moon Rising Farm 2019! Camp season registration has officially begun. If it is your first time here we are excited to have you join us. If you are a familiar face, so glad to have you back.  It is turning out to be a very busy summer with big family events and camp sandwiched in the middle. I will be in Bolivia in early June visiting my younger son Sawyer who is studying there on a year-long Rotary scholarship. At the end of summer, my older son Sage is getting married here on the farm. Both he and his fiancé Rohini were camp counselors here years ago. I have so much to be grateful for! So, with all of these goings on, we are offering fewer camps this year but the richness and fullness of what we are offering will be tremendous and pleasing to all. We have a fantastic staff, teaching their passions of animal husbandry, woodworking, blacksmithing, herbalism, wilderness skills, storytelling, songwriting, gardening, and nature crafting. Take your time perusing the site and never hesitate to contact us via email with any questions you may have.


From Anne and all the staff, we look forward to seeing you here this summer!
