Hickory Grove is a five acre mini-farm with private lake access located in Western Kentucky and is the future home of Spirit of the Earth Church Inc. an established Eclectic Wiccan Church. Purchased in early 2010, Hickory Grove is now in the transition stages of becoming a permanent home for Spirit of the Earth Church meetings, festivals, and community members.
Spirit of the Earth’s vision is to create an eclectic spiritual community that honors Nature in her many forms, provides education, fosters growth, and promotes Interfaith education and dialogue within the greater community.
One of our goals at Spirit of the Earth Church has been to build a Nature based intentional community with those of like minds (following a Wiccan Path is NOT a requirement). We have begun working on what will be a small eco-village with co-housing options. Community gardens are being planted and plans for community buildings are in the works.
If you would like more information, feel free to contact us.
Community location is placed at the center of the zip/postal code, city/state, or city/country (not based on street addresses)
