We are thrilled to welcome Anna Mullen, who was selected after a competitive process as the inaugural recipient of our new month-long retreat award. Anna will be in residence from October 15, 2015 to November 18, 2015. During this time she will be closely observing and documenting the sheep flock (and other aspects of the farm) as part of her deep interest in animal consciousness. A recent graduate of Middlebury College, Anna has spent summers teaching environmental awareness to children. Anna’s cover letter clearly explains why she was selected as our first awardee. She expects to present an overview of her work near the end of her residency, which will be open to the public.
The Treleven Residency Award is designed for individuals who share Treleven’s philosophy and interests, who need a peaceful setting in which to pursue creative or program development activities, and whose work will benefit from the sense of place provided by the farm. The next residency will be held from April 18, 2016 to May 16, 2016. The online application form will be available on this web site in January. The residency program is adding a rich new dimension to the courses, workshops, summer programs and farm internships that Treleven continues to sponsor. Please encourage your friends to apply–or apply yourself if you have an interesting project in mind. Treleven’s chief areas of concern include environmental awareness, social justice, spiritual development and mental health.
