From 2006 onwards, Windcall cultivated meaningful partnerships with programs and individuals who donated facilities, land and staffing: Stone Circles, NC; Pie in the Sky, VT; Blue Mountain Center, NY; Tunitas Creek Ranch, CA.
Merrill Weyerhaeuser and Pat Welly offered their home in the Hood Canal, WA, surrounded by forests, mountains, and water. Twice a year, local chef and nature guide Jerry Austin coordinates the cohorts. The Olympic Peninsula site has been Windcall’s longest partner.
Each site had its own unique characteristics, but all maintained the original 9 practices. POC participation increased from 45% to 82%.
