Holly Baldwin

Treleven was delighted to welcome Holly Baldwin, director of Beacon Hill Friends House in Boston as a fall resident.  Holly proposed using the quiet of the farm, and the support of Treleven Board members, as a way to plan out the three month sabbatical that she had recently been offered. While here, she spent lots of time walking/hiking, reading, and enjoying the solitude. For 11 years she directed BHFH, an intentional community of 21 people. As she said “when you live where you work, and are responsible for the well being of your community, there is little time or space for quiet contemplation”.  You can read more about BHFH and Holly’s thoughtful articles here:  Beacon Hill Friends House.

As you will see from the post, her sabbatical opened up so many new avenues of thought that she has decided to take a new step in her career. We were grateful to be one of the way stations on her journey toward new experiences.

Applications for creative residencies are accepted on a rolling basis. The typical spring residency coincides with lambing season. Fall residencies often coincide with peak foliage season.
