We believe in the interconnectedness of all things. We believe that humans are the designated ones to find true balance with the Mother Earth. We believe that by bringing people to land and nature, each can heal the other. It is time to simplify, to get closer to the earth and all of her amazing gifts. It is no longer good enough to just heal humans. We focus on a Earth model; a holistic approach to healing that embraces our interconnected relationship to the land, animals, plants, weather and the invisible energetic communications of the web of life. We invite you to join our new A-GAIA-CULTURE MOVEMENT!
Casari Ranch is a 408 acre biodynamic, diverse working ranch in what feels like a remote, private location bordering year round Salmon Creek, yet less than an hour from the San Francisco Bay Area. Its easy to let the pressures of the world fall away as you drive down the quiet lane on the way to the ranch, naturally preparing you for a serene transition to one of the most quiet, private ranches in Sonoma county.
As you drive over the bridge you arrive at our antique apple orchard taking you to another era in time. A time when life was simple, and the earth held the bounty of health at your fingertips. Our thunderbird, bear and salmon totem pole welcome you to our protected space where time stands still. You can still feel grandma putting up the summer’s bounty of apples in the old canning cabin at the orchard’s edge.
Take a quiet walk (aka Forest Bathing) by the creek and listen to the song birds and take in the healing fragrance of the nearby forests and clean air coming in off the coast. Relish in the amazing richness of the fern gullies and plethora of exotic plant life. Wildlife is abundant and encouraged on our ranch. Enjoy our local birds of prey, egrets, ducks, herons, quail, raven, deer, bobcat as well as our ranch horses, sheep, goats and chickens.
This venue reminds me of the line in the song, "The Hills Are Alive with the Sound Of Music", set atop our lush grassy meadows, with hundreds of acres of seasonal wildflowers overlooking the Pacific Ocean, far off inland mountains and Salmon Creek and Bodega valley below. Your on top of the world here!
Our numerous gardens include medicinal herbs, fruit and vegetables, and ornamental wonders including the 24 feet tall rhododendrons. Pretty awesome and sets the stage for floral arrangements and farm to table foods.
We love our goats, sheep, horses, chickens, ducks and our local wildlife, bobcats, hawks, doves, ravens, frogs and more. We offer educational tours by appointment.
Ariana loves to blog about land, nature, healing, herbs and growing and harvesting your own healing foods and nature's medicine. Hope to share the journey with you.
