Mark this year’s celebration of spring with the annual Teter Wildflower Walk on Sunday, April 18. Wander the woods on your own anytime between 1pm and 3pm, with guided tours beginning at 1pm and 2pm.
Come and see the Asarum canadense and the Claytonia virginica in the native habitat that Teter Farm & Retreat is so fortunate to boast. See other flowers as well. Last year someone spotted a Jack-in-the-Pulpit and a Mertensia, and there are lots of trilliums and trout lilies too.
Teter Retreat & Farm is located at 10980 East 221st Street, Noblesville and the event is free and open to the public.
In the event of lightning or downpours, the event will be held on Sunday, April 25.
Teter Farm & Retreat is an outreach mission of Noblesville First United Methodist Church. The property was acquired in 1981 from Ruter Teter, an interested and active member of the church. When she died, she was unmarried and had no close family. In her will, she gave her 120-acre family farm to the congregation with the request that it be developed into a church retreat and named in memory of the A.W. Teter family. In 2015, the idea was born to expand the retreat facility’s purpose to include an organic farm, as a community outreach ministry to feed spirit, mind and body. Teter Organic Farm now raises over 40 varieties of vegetables on five acres aiming to combat food insecurity, to build community through meaningful relationships across barriers that sometimes divide us, and to educate children and adults on the importance of environmental stewardship and care.
