Talking Gourd is a Bardic, Eco-Arts, nomadic Community begun 25 years ago

We invite poets, writers, musicians, artists, story tellers, chefs,
Lovers of Beauty and this amazing Planet,
to gather for a week at the Farm, in a milagro of birds and butterflies,
to speak and sing our places alive, to chant, and drum and talk …
to dream and rest and wonder … to hike and wildcraft …
praise and play … & feast on delicious food:
just-made tortillas, exotic fruits, fresh juices, farmraised meats, local vegetables –
all the delights of local cuisine, including divine
from-the-oven pies, brownies, breads….
The Farm offers a range of indoor/outdoor lodging and include
bounteous, scrumptious meals!
Talking Gourd South coincides with the San Miguel Writer’s Conference,
