June wrapped up our Spring Sunday Salon Series and what beautiful time was spent for all who attended! For this series, being our first, we had the vision of creating a place where we could create community for just 45 minutes on a monthly Sunday to listen, learn and share with each other. We learned how color can actually make us feel physically better and we created some expressive art together. We talked about resilience and how to receive from others, sharing thoughts and personal experiences. Lastly, we had smiles and fun all the way around with Joanna making "honey tonics for wellness" even including a honey cocktail!

Enjoy recordings of these previous Sunday Salons below as we look forward to the Fall Sunday Salon Series. If you have a good idea for a salon, feel free to contact us at More info to follow.

Resilience: Strength After Crisis

Joanna's Kitchen: Why is honey so delicious?

Because it is the nectar of the HiVe, a thriving community

with Joanna Bressel-Wilder

In The HiVe Vol. 1 - Out of our first collection of HiVe gatherings now salons, supporting community during quarantine, all gathered shared a little of ourselves and discovered our different artistic and poetic talents culminating with “In the HiVe Vol. 1. Proceeds from this program went to Dolls Clan, a women's collective in South America that uses graffiti art to creatively focus on issues of domestic violence and sex trafficking.

In The HiVe Vol. 2 (coming soon) - We will continue growing together with this message; that everyone has something to offer, something to share, or something to learn as we create Vol 2. Inspiration for the upcoming book stems from our HiVe’s Sunday Salons, Zinc House Farm Summer Series, and Seasonal Events focussing on Wellness and Nature.

Good news… There is finally progress on rebuilding my home after the arson fire last March. My contractor started the demolition phase, which will be a full gut of the building and will take another 16 months to complete the rebuild. Thank you to so many of you who have helped support me during this challenging time by donating to receive some of the “Banner of Hope” flags.

During these past few months, since the war on Ukraine began, I have been reflecting, like so many of you, on what it must be like to be in a war zone. Unimaginable terror, unimaginable destruction, unimaginable grief. Losing my home to fire does not compare to the Ukraine war; it has however stirred in me how important community and support truly are. I began sewing “Ukraine Peace Flags” to begin a campaign of giving back to the Ukrainian relief effort through VenturaVie. Many of VenturaVie donors and friends have so generously helped me navigate rebuilding my life and I, in return want to keep the circle of giving and receiving ongoing. Please consider donating to this effort. I have many beautiful Banner of Hope flags already sewn that you can choose from and I also take special orders.

See more available flag images below and how the progress is going on my house because of your donations to the Banners of Hope and Peace Flags project. Thank you again!!!
