Crystalaire Adventures

Crystalaire Adventures is an outdoor adventure program in Northern Michigan that strives to make the world better by helping people learn to live and work together. We run playful, inclusive trips in wild places that strive to give our participants a meaningful experience. Fun is at the core of the mission, and is central to the way we provide experiential learning opportunities with life-long impact.

Every year we run trips that meet the needs of the times and let our places be our teachers. In the 21st century, our trips provide a space for kids and adults to unplug, spend some quality face-to-face time with others, and practice crucial interpersonal and leadership skills. Our expeditions give people a chance to get to know the beauty  of the regions they live in, and learn from the lessons every socio-ecological context offers to those traveling through.


Healing Tree Farm at DeyoungHealing Tree Farm at DeYoung is a 12-acre

permaculture-based demonstration farm just outside of Traverse City, MI.

Following the guiding principles of Permaculture, Healing Tree is connecting people

with the concepts of growing sustainably within existing ecosystems. Our mission is

to demonstrate orcharding skills and techniques that may be integrated into existing

conventional farms, reducing the use of biocides and petrol-derived fertilizers. We

demonstrate holistic orchard care, connecting growers with new and revived methods

for healing the old orchards; creating an environment that is safe for farmers,

workers, and the neighboring community.

Anyone Can Farm has “…sought to develop a farm where our children can run and play and grow without worrying about chemical pesticides or chemical fertilizers on the grass they wrestle in or the tomatoes they eat fresh from the garden.  We welcome folks who value the best quality food and food that will build their bodies to partner with us in this venture.”
