Mt. Tabor Monastery Grows with GB
by EA Staff

Holy Transfiguration Monastery in Redwood Valley, CA (, originally established in 1972 as "The Monks of Mt. Tabor" and later renamed, is a contemplative community and part of the Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church. The monks endeavor to follow the advice of St. Seraphim of Sarov, "Acquire inner peace and a thousand souls around you will be saved." The church is open to all, and one does not need to be Ukrainian to join the monastery or attend church services.

The Monastery's Brother Zacharias participated in our 2023 Online 8-Month Internship Program and this year, working with a poor soil and limited water, he his fellow monks have established a truly inspiring mini-farm on the monastery grounds with a wonderful range of crops including: late-planted wheat, squash, lettuce, arugula, onions, and garlic, as well as potatoes and corn, (pictured absolutely thriving, below) with excellent results. The Mt. Tabor Team are learning well together, and sharing their GB knowledge with their church as well as visitors to the monastery. Over time, Brother Zacharias also hopes to learn from the nearby tribe of Pomo Native Americans.
