Kinstone Megalithic Gardens

Kinstone Megalithic Garden is unique in all the world. It has been said that Kinstone features the largest privately owned stone circle in the world. This has not been confirmed, but we must be close! There are over a million tons of granite boulders, standing stones and sculptures. Come to enjoy the beauty of the space, see our gardens and Permaculture work in progress, find a spot for quiet contemplation and re-connect to nature, or take a circuitous walk around to visit the stones and natural buildings.

Kinstone is located in rural Fountain City just off County Road M on Cole Bluff Lane. It is a contemplative, park-like place with spectacular views and intriguing sculpture and structures. This stunning 30-acre bluff-top property has over 100 standing stones including a large stone circle and megalithic dolmen, classic 7-circuit labyrinth, thatched cordwood chapel, dry-stack stone sculpture, natural buildings, permaculture gardens, terraces and more. There are several alignments of interest at Summer and Winter Solstice and the Equinoxes. Kinstone is also home to Kinstone Academy of Applied Permaculture where we provide education for sustainable living. We host courses, workshops and hands-on learning experiences for those who wish to regenerate, relearn and revive. You learn about caring for the earth, caring for people and giving something back when yields are bountiful. Find more about what Permaculture is, our teaching philosophy and current offerings on our website.

Scheduled guided tours of Kinstone are available every Sunday at 1:00pm from May through October. Private guided tours are possible by special arrangement. Expect to spend a couple of hours wandering a wonderland that seems as if it is from another time and place. Bring your water bottle, sunblock for sunny days, dress for the weather (sun hat, rain coat, umbrella, etc), wear sturdy shoes and be prepared to walk rough and sometimes steep terrain. Find details and directions on our website.

When you visit, please come to the Education Center (red pole-barn) and check in. We appreciate all visitors signing our guest book inside. Donations can be made there or in the donation box in the chapel.

Hours: May through October: Saturdays & Sundays 11am – 4pm
All other times are by appointment; please call to let us know when you’ll be coming! The grounds are generally available for folks to wander on their own during daylight hours from May through October. The labyrinth and the chapel are two areas that frequently have visitors unannounced. This works fine as long as visitors are respectful of our parking area and grounds. Please bring nothing with you except a camera & notebook and leave nothing behind except your footprints light upon the earth.

Cost:
Self-guided Visit: suggested donation $4/adult $2/youth
1-Hour Guided Tour (1pm every Sunday, May through October): $5/person
Other tours and events as advertised or published on our calendar, see our website!
Donations go in the designated donation boxes in the Chapel or in the Education Center.
