The Natural Gathering Grounds
Josh and Maren bought this beautiful property 3 years ago with plans to make it there home. And they did, for a while. Plans change and evolve. This 50 plus acres on the Edisto River that we call “the farm” is now becoming an important business venture for them.
The Natural Gathering Grounds – This link shows the property, a wedge shape running from the road back to a dock on the Edisto River where it makes a dramatic turn. Located just down river from Givhans Ferry State Park hundreds of tubers float by the dock on hot summer days. All the ponds, easily visible on the map, were developed by the previous owner who thought to make the site into a fishing camp. Maren and Josh are recreating it into a camping/glamping and events destination.
We keep our motor home in the large metal quonset building the previous owner built. Yesterday we took the motor home back to put it away for winter. It was a beautiful day so I took my camera.
At a recent 3 day yoga festival one of the artistic types painted this mural on a storage building……
