is a 5 acre preserve of land in Estero, FL. As you enter Happehatchee
and learn more about the property it has an interesting history. It was acquired by the Girl Scouts in the middle of the 20th century until sold to a private individual in 1972. Over time, it became a property that was environmentally and spiritually friendly and became open to the public in a limited fashion in 2013.
The Happehatchee Center offers a number of community events. There are Children's programs, Events for whom English is not a primary language and spiritual events such as Yoga in Nature.
Perusing the center they had some interesting things including a Labyrinth
and a bridge (albeit closed) across the Estero River.
Recently, the center sponsored a concert by Emmy and Peabody awardee Kat Epple accompanied by Nathan Dyke.
Before the performance, there was a potluck dinner with many interesting items. Attendees brought shared items such as deviled eggs,
fried chicken, corn bread and Quinoa.
Attendees had a great time sharing
and engaging in conversation.
The musical performance by Kat Epple and Nathan Dyke was exceptional.
Ms. Epple per usual held a stunning woodwind performance
while Mr, Dyke complemented on instruments such as the Digeridoo
and the Ngoni
This was a wonderful evening of food, camaraderie and music. Highly recommended.
