Our History 

The Happehatchee Center is located on Sacred Grounds

SWFL Nature WalkWhen you arrive at Happehatchee, some of the first things you notice are the tall majestic trees that populate the land. Although our parking lot is located close to Corkscrew Road, as soon as you park, you will find yourself surrounded by old pines, oaks and palms of various types, welcoming you back to nature. The placement of the lot is designed to help free your mind as you walk the path to the main campus.

We invite you to take your time and enjoy your journey to your class, your meeting, or whatever has brought you to Happehatchee. Walking along the path, Many stalks of young bamboo in forest.dwarfed by the trees and vegetation on both sides, you will soon be upon the pond, where you may spy turtles, fish, herons, an egret or the occasional hare. Also at the pond you will find water lilies and lotus blossoms.

Sitting at the picnic table you hear the gentle clacking of bamboo trunks, standing tall against the sky, as they sway in the breeze and you realize that you are indeed someplace special.

Traveling further down the path, over to the right, behind the majestic oak trees covered with resurrection ferns, is a beautiful butterfly garden, created and maintained by the Girl Scouts, who’s first camp in SWFL was located on the very ground on which you are walking.

As you continue your journey to the center of Happehatchee, you will pass a fire circle where the local Maya people gather to perform their sacred traditional ceremonies. All are invited to participate with the Maya Spiritual Guide.

In front of you now is the octagonal building called the Peace Pavilion the space where most classes and events take place. To your left is the living Food Forest and the Happehatchee Nursery.

Next you will arrive at the Happehatchee Historic House that has been here since 1947 – you have arrived now at the center of Happehatchee, a sanctuary for peace and healing.

Enjoy your time on this Sacred Land.
