Submitted by Margo Frank, Redwood Valley, California: Elder Women’s Solstice Circle (land affected by drought)

Every solstice and equinox a small group of elder women gather to sit in circle and walk on the land at the Redwood Valley Outdoor Education Project. This site was a dumping ground for many years until community members cleaned it up and restored it to its natural state. Schoolchildren now visit it to learn about the natural world.
