Magical Earth Retreats believes that there is severe nature deficit disorder in the world today and it is their goal to eliminate this, one child or adult at a time. With Magical Earth Retreats, Don and Jane May Jones are filling a need, especially for school children to connect with nature and art at the same time. Art programs have been drastically cut from our school system and field trips into nature are virtually non-existent. Children in the inner city have little or no contact with nature. As such they are unable to understand the importance of saving the planet, nor do they understand how we are all connected.

For further information or details contact Jane May Jones at 802-423-7535 or at You can also find them on Facebook at Magical Earth Retreats and on the web at, where you can find other program offerings.
