Who and Where We Are

November 30th, 2011

We are Leslie and John, founders of Wind Dance Farm & Earth Education Center in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia. We have been offering educational programs year round since 2001, and managing our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), which has provided a wealth of wholesome food since 2002 to local families.

The educational programs operate within a non-profit 501 c3 status.   We milk goats, make soap, calendula ointment, and hand & body cream. 

Leslie Devine Milbourne holds a master’s degree in environmental education from Acadia University in Pennsylvania, and has been working in education since 1984. John Devine is a traditional musician, singing and playing guitar, and has been in the music circuit since the 70′s.

We have a strong belief that the earth will support us as long as we learn to live with and take care of her.  We are committed to sustainable living and teaching.  At Wind Dance we live, teach, work and play on the farm with the earth foremost in mind.

We are expanding and growing!  As program offerings continue to grow we are expanding our space building a timber frame Education Center.  We are accepting contributions towards this effort.  You can learn more through the Fund Raiser page.
