Farm to Fork III: A Celebration of Women Farmers

Grailville & Edible Ohio Valley Magazine, in partnership with Turner Farm, are excited for their third annual celebration of women in agriculture—and of the tasty food they provide us! Spend an evening at Grailville feasting on excellent local food and showing your support and encouragement to the women farmers in the tri-state area. Grailville has a long tradition of women in agriculture from our beginning in 1944 until today. We are pleased to take this time to honor those women who helped to pave the way and those who continue to work the land! The evening is designed to encourage the coming together of women farmers with the community they nourish. Join us for this delicious locally grown feast sourced directly from the farmers whom we are celebrating, as well as from other community growers and sources.

Zen Retreat with Fr. AMA Samy S.J.

Whether you are interested in deepening your current practice of Zen Meditation or would like to experience Zen meditation for the first time, you are welcome to experience this uniquely Grailville retreat, offered exclusively at Grailville for nearly two decades. This retreat is led by Fr. AMA Samy S.J., a Zen Master born in Burma to Christian parents and educated in the Buddhist environment. It is because he is rooted in Christianity and in Zen that allows him to help us all grow deeper in the Mystery that unites us all. This retreat provides Zazen (Silent meditation), Dokusan (opportunities for private discussions with Fr AMA Samy), evening talks by Fr AMA Samy, an optional Eucharistic Liturgy, and an introductory session for those new to Zen meditation. The author of Zen Heart, Zen Mind, Zen: Awakening To Your Original Face, and Zen Meditation, AMA Samy lives and teaches at Bodhi Zendo, a meditation center in Kodai Kanal, India that he founded, and also conducts retreats in Europe, North America and Japan.
