Weekly "Walk" Around Starcross

We've started something new! Each week we invite you to join us for a digital "walk" through Starcross gardens, grounds & forest! 


We feel grateful to be surrounded by plants and animals that are waking up to a beautiful Spring. However, we are keenly aware that during this time of necessary self-isolation & social-distancing it may be extremely hard, and often times unsafe, for individuals to get outside. We hope that this weekly email lifts your spirits and rejuvenates you, as it does for those of us here!
