This May, the “Culture Vultures” will descend on New Harmony!
This group, comprised of early retirees and University of Southern Indiana gerontology students, is intended to “promote history, arts, education and health living” within its membership. While in New Harmony, they will engage with town in a variety of ways. They will start their day at Fragrant Farms and will get to experience the acres of peonies in the peak of their bloom. They will then explore the Harmonist Labyrinth before going on a guided walking tour lead by Historic New Harmony. They will get to explore town on their own for lunch and shopping and will close the day with a meditative walk at the Cathedral Labyrinth and a debrief and reflection session at the Atheneum.
There are several organizations and businesses in town that help groups plan day-long and overnight retreats in New Harmony. This trip was organized through Historic New Harmony, but Events of Harmony also coordinates many such programs as well. The Blaffer Foundation owns many venues and spaces in town as well that groups take advantage off for retreats, receptions, and other special events.
No matter what the reason for your trip to Utopia, New Harmony has the amenities and resources to help make your visit engaging and worthwhile! Everyone is welcome to Visit New Harmony!
