TreeHuggers Festival: A Benefit for Mariandale

Why our community loves Mariandale:

Take a minute to hear Laura Varga, a regular participant in contemplative prayer sessions, describe how Mariandale has made a difference in her life.

Why our community loves Mariandale:

Meet Charlie Roberto, an avid birder and walker of the land,  and listen as he describes how the Mariandale land’s “views, wildlife, and serenity” have touched his life.
