COVID-19 Information


Last Updated 05 September 2020

Dear Faeries,

The year 2020 began like most others at Folleterre with the joy and optimism of an abundant year of faeries gathering on the land together. In the wake of the global pandemic, our ordinary cycle of gatherings has been disrupted and few if any faeries will be able to travel to the land.

The Stewards Circle of Folleterre has chosen to prioritize health and safety above all else and will continually evaluate the changing circumstances in France and the rest of Europe in consultation with gathering organizers and the wider community. When it becomes possible to schedule gatherings that protect the well-being of individual faeries and the community, with respect for our local neighbors and regional travel restrictions, entirely new gatherings may be Called and announced to faeries online.

We understand that these extraordinary cancellations leave many hearts broken and spirits yearning for connection. At this time more than ever before, we encourage faeries to facilitate local and regional faerie initiatives as the situation allows in some areas, and to actively conceive of pandemic-responsive gathering formats. The Steward Circle of the EuroFaerie Fund is available to support you with experienced-based advice, technical support, and community funding. If you are interested in facilitating local or regional faerie initiatives, please contact the EuroFaerie Fund: eurofaeries@folleterre.org

If you are a faerie who is in need of sanctuary while Folleterre is closed, or are in need of other assistance, the wider Folleterre community may be able to mobilize and help actively support you. Please reach out to let us know how you are doing: communitysupport@folleterre.org

Furthermore, to help ease the touchlessness of our times, if you are interested to facilitate a virtual faerie circle or organize an online gathering, the Folleterre Zoom account, with capacity for 100 faerie participants, is available to you as a community resource. If you feel the call to create a online offering, please get in touch: confcall@folleterre.org

As for the state of the Sanctuary, a careful and quiet watch is being kept on our home by a small team of dedicated Caretakers. Even as the natural environment of our meadows and forests rebounds in the absence of human impact, the house and property demand minimal maintenance, protection, and enrichment with nurturing faerie presence. If you are interested to be of service to the Land as a resident-caretaker, please inquire and fill out our inclusive Queerstionaire: residency@folleterre.org

Meanwhile, we hope you continue to find comfort and connection through local faerie circles as well as global online faerie events, including Heart Circles, No Talent Shows, Love Temples, and more. Check your FaeNet and visit the Folleterre Faeries Group and Online Radical Faeries Gathering Facebook pages for ongoing updates.

Take care of yourselves and nourish those around you.

With hope and love,
The Folleterre Steward Circle
