Mandala  Farm at St. Francis:  a photo tour

The home of Sr. Marie Ahern, where she hosted Monday night community suppers for many years, burned beyond repair this past winter!
H.O.M.E. and the St. Francis Community would like to replace it with a small house for a couple of long-time members of our community.
We need your support to do this.

Garden & House             2007 fire
The old farm house, which was originally the barn, burned in 2007.  Everyone got out safely, including the dogs & cats.

Thanks to the wonderful and generous support of our friends, the big new house was completed very quickly.
