Anniversary Campaign

“The Great Turning is a name for the essential adventure of our time: the shift from the industrial growth society to a life-sustaining civilization.” --Joanna Macy

Narrow Ridge has a long history of creating worthwhile initiatives that embody its cornerstone values--Sustainability, Community, Spirituality. Examples include protecting 600 acres of rural land, providing a place for spiritual retreat and renewal for visitors and residents alike, establishing the state's first approved natural burial grounds, and building community both among those who come to Narrow Ridge because they believe in its mission as well as with local folk on the relatively remote, north side of Clinch Mountain in Grainger County.
