Join us for a day of guided writing, walking, and connecting with nature and creative community.

About this event

Immersed in this tranquil environment, you will gather valuable knowledge and inspiration from expert botanists, writers, artists, somatic movement practitioners, and architects.

Como Orchards is a 250 acre ranch in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana, the ancestral home of the Salish people. As a young architect, Frank Lloyd Wright designed a community here for “noted savants” to connect to, and be inspired by, the land. A mix of cattle grazed prairie land, apple orchard, timber, and meadows, Como Orchards invites you to dangle your feet in a cool mountain stream and connect to the wild.

Local discount available and scholarships. Please write organizer with any questions. Thank you!
