Barn Renovation Fund
The Temple of Witchcraft is moving forward with the next major phase of our site plan, the Community Center Barn Restoration. As you might remember, when obtaining our current property, we were required by the town to construct a full parking lot with industrial lights and full hard wired fire alarm system to officially open two rooms of the residence as teaching, ritual and office space. We successfully raised the needed funds in a very short time.
Our next goal is to restore and modernize the barn to create a separate community center with dedicated ritual space. To satisfy occupancy codes, we will have to put water, sewer, heat/air and a chair lift, as well as expand the parking lot area based on a per person occupancy rate.
The first step in the community center is the funds for the engineer and architect who will design the interior and site plan to submit to the Town of Salem. This current fundraiser represents the funds needed for these engineer/architect fees. Any funds exceeding this GoFundMe go to our legal representation before the town and the actual construction costs. It's a long term project but we are confident in our community goals to establish a center for magick and mystery that will outlive us all and serve the community for time to come.
Members of the Sagittarius Mystery are looking forward to the barn renovation to have multiple class spaces, including the larger rituals space allowing more room for classes with ecstatic posture and movement, floor space for shamanic dream journey and more space for ritual altars to tend when learning to work with the elementals, ancestors and deities in class settings. Having more space can facilitate hosting additional online classes as well. Having kitchen facilities in the barn will allow us to do more education that is "messy" including more herbalism, alchemy and hands on crafting.
