Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage founders, Gabriel of Urantia and Niánn Emerson Chase, created the vision of the Earth Harmony Festival to encourage a restoration of balance to the world’s people and ecosystems through environmental awareness, education, and a commitment to peace and unity without uniformity. One of the festival coordinators, Amadon DellErba says, “We are definitely putting our love, sweat, and tears into this festival each year and all it represents, because we know the message of the festival is vital for the health of the planet and our grandchildren. Like our gardens, we see it growing and blossoming each year, and so that’s encouraging that more and more people are waking up to the necessity for all citizens of the world, and especially the Western world, to adopt a sustainable lifestyle.”
The Earth Harmony Festival thrives on partnership! Donors and sponsors make the festival possible and help support Avalon Gardens Internships and the Personality Integration Rehabilitation Program — nonprofit programs which assist Performers
