Founded in the Spring of 1975 by Beverly & William Ford, this beloved "third place" enjoyed it's 44th birthday in 2019, just prior to being acquired on June 3rd by Sky Mother, LLC. Sky Mother was the original name of Spiral Circle and formed as a joint venture between the Summer Rodman Trust (majority ownership) and Yestermorrow Adventures, which is wholly owned by Julie Wilder.
Inspired by Beverly Ford's pioneering spirit and a deep commitment to community, these new caretakers will cultivate this spiritual space into the foreseeable future.
