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.
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.
