Randi Linehan’s “Farmhouse Hair Project”

The Farmhouse Hair Project Fundraiser

My name is Randi Eicher Linehan, and I am shaving my head for a barn.

Not because I don’t like my hair; hair is very important to most women. I’m shaving my head because this is a different kind of barn.

Three years ago, I joined the Metamora United Methodist church, which has since been re-imagined into a beautiful place called Farmhouse. We are a source of health for our community, a “third space” where neighbors can meet, and where we can support local farmers and producers, and someday produce our own food and services to offer back to create a place economy that will empower small area businesses and consumers.

We are a space for spiritual learning of all kinds, and soon we will have lectures, workshops, retreats and places to be in nature. You can see more here: The Farmhouse ProjectOnce there, click on The Farmhouse Project video to see what is possible.

More than ever, communities like ours are needed, where people can come together to join in making the world the way it was intended to be. Paradise is now, and it exists in all of us.

But Farmhouse needs a home. All we have right now is a hole in the ground and some dreams. We need $125,000 to finish our project to build the farmhouse for us to work in, gather in, reach out from, and welcome everyone into.

So I’m shaving my head, because I want people to know how important this is to me. If I am asking you to make a sacrifice, I need to sacrifice too.

 This fundraiser will go on until February 10, when I will shave my head at the Sunday morning event, and livestream it on Facebook live.
