Adams County has a new, internationally significant event: Spring Seed and Water Peace Summit. Held annually in March (timed to celebrate the Spring Equinox), the Summit brings together delegations from the Americas and all around the world to talk and pray about and for International Peace. Its message: “It Takes a Village; All nations All races All my relations”.
​Organized by Locust Grove residents Thomas Johnson and Terri Sings With Ravens, the three-day event is held annually at Woodland Altars event center & campground just a few miles from Serpent Mound. Free and open to the public, the Summit is made possible by voluntary contributions and fund drives.
​A major focus of the three-day program is the celebration and blessing of ancient seeds from around the world; praying, energizing, and exchanging these seeds. “It will be these seeds that will be planted by the people; the pollen from the flowers will be carried by the bees and wind all over the world. The power of these seeds is the Power of Creation, the planting of a New World of Peace” say the event’s founders.
​Four days of celebration include family-friendly and children’s activities, music, dance, meditation, and prayer by an amazing array of Native Speakers and Musicians, from all over the world. “This is a self-sustaining event,” explains Terri. “Everyone brings non-GMO food, wild game or free range meats and eggs. We encourage everyone to take a turn volunteering in the kitchen with prep work, cooking and clean up. Leftover food goes to two different soup kitchens and a self-sustaining community. Money left over goes for speakers in honorarium.”
​Part of the attraction is Woodland Altars itself, nestled deep in the quiet hills of Southern Ohio. Woodland Altars overlooks the impact crater, a unique geological formation. “There’s lots of beautiful energy,” says Tom Johnson, a well-known authority on trilobites and other fossils. Attendees can camp on site or stay in comfortable accommodations scattered among 450 acres of natural beauty
