Stump Sprouts Farm Retreat Center: Yoga classes and Writing workshops will be held in the old dairy barn which has been converted into a large multi-purpose space. In summer months, a unique moveable ceiling exposes the roof timbers thirty feet above the floor and two lofts, which are reached by a spiral staircase up through the old silo. The large windows allow for plenty of natural light. The floors are native hardwood and are great for yoga.

Student accomodations are in the lodge (seen at right). Built and furnished almost entirely from timbers harvested on this land, the lodge is perched atop a high meadow with dramatic views to the south and east. On the top two levels, there are seven bunkrooms and a living room with a fireplace. On the bottom level, there is a dining room and kitchen. There are also four shared bathrooms. Stump Sprouts is located on West Hill Road, one mile off Route 8A in West Hawley, Massachusetts. Visit their site for more information about the facilities at
