Our Calling

What We Do

We organize an annual event connecting families to resources enabling them to live a transformative self-sustaining lifestyle grounded in community where health, well-being, and an abundant life are a reality.


Who We Are

Berlin Seeds and Superb are family-owned businesses who envision community as a place where everyone can sit under their own vine and fig tree and no one makes them afraid. (Micah 4:4)



Timbercrest is a natural environment of wide open meadows, campgrounds, and woodlands, just outside the
village of Walnut Creek, smack dab in Amish Country, Holmes County, Ohio.
