Day visitors may come to Sirius for specific events – like open mic nights or seasonal parties – or they may come just to get away from it all, walking our forest paths, working alongside our members in the gardens or meditating in the Sanctuary. All are welcome. If you are thinking of visiting during a time when we don’t have any particular event scheduled or are not otherwise expecting any guests, it is best to call ahead, just to insure someone will be around to receive you. Meals with the community may be arranged then as well if one wishes.
We conduct a formal tour of the community twice a month during Open House. Tours are also arranged through the office for educational groups coming to learn about sustainability, intentional community, organic gardening, and/or other aspects of our shared activities. We often make such arrangements for classes from local elementary schools, and also for college groups that may travel great enough distances to warrant spending a weekend. Visitors are also welcome to tour the premises on their own using maps we provide and tips from community members passing by.
