This garden makes extensive use of stone, water and deer resistant plants to express the tranquil feeling of a Japanese style design.
Visitors will be treated to an in-depth look at the underlying Zen themes built into the rock arrangements and pond layout, as well as information about the planting themes and plant materials. The garden has been built over a period of many years and was designed by the preeminent landscape designer, Robert Ketchell, of Britain.
Tour followed by Cedar Enzyme Footbaths, tea and snacks.
Admission: $25. Book a service for that day and get $20 off any service. Space is limited to 14, make your reservations in advance.

Participants will pause and sit down on this bountiful earth in the peacefulness of the Osmosis meditation garden, cultivating presence and awareness of body heart and mind.

The program includes sitting and walking meditation, a dharma talk, a cedar enzyme foot-bath, a customized 75-minute massage, organic lunch prepared by Fork Roadhouse, time for quiet reflection and conversation around how to continue the practice in our daily lives.

Join us in the Osmosis Meditation Garden for an unforgettable, heart and soul filled performance. All proceeds will benefit the Ceres Community Project.
The evening begins with a cheese and wine reception on the front garden at Osmosis. An exquisite farm to table dinner will be prepared and served by the Ceres Community Project. CERES is a local non-profit teaching teens to cook while providing wholesome prepared food to families facing life-threatening illnesses. After dinner, guests will be ushered into the outdoor theater for the performance.
BrightSide Blue is a duo from Nevada City that combines heart and soul filled vocals with virtuosic guitar-work to create brilliantly colored musical portraits. Ananda and Lindsay carry a powerful yet sensitive approach to their songwriting and performances, leaving audiences smiling and spellbound.
“This love story has a soundtrack.” Lindsay Bellows and Ananda Vaughan have found the perfect complements in each other: Lindsay is a soulful songbird, who soars and dives over the lush textures of Ananda’s musical landscapes. Equal parts groove and melody, their songs keep audiences delightfully engaged — tapping feet, singing along, and basking in the love for life that radiates from this couple.
Ananda trained for many years as a jazz guitarist and has found inspiration in other guitar masters from rock, folk and world music. Lindsay grew up with pop and R&B music, and studied the influencers of her childhood idols — the soul and blues singers of the mid 20th century. The pair brings together the best of all these genres to create a sound that is authentically and uniquely their own.
BrightSide Blue has just released their latest EP, BETWEEN WORLDS. Their debut EP “Two Hearts, One Take” was released in Spring 2017.
Tickets are all-inclusive with dinner from Ceres Community Project, Wine, and Cedar EnzymeFootbaths.
