Earth Weekend

20 April @ 10:00 AM 21 April @ 5:00 PM EDT

Join us for an Earth Weekend work party on the farm!

We’ve planned a wonderful weekend for you.

SATURDAY:

Yoga Session: We’ll warm up with some yoga and set our intentions for the day.

Practical Permaculture: We’ll play “The Environment Game” to get us thinking about those things that are more or less helpful to the environment and to society.

Farm Tidying Tasks: Removing non-natural material from the fields, Organise and stack metal panels for use on Sunday.  The cleanup in this area will prepare it for a cover crop of buckwheat to feed the bees this year.

Lunch

Rock Painting:  We’ll paint rocks to be placed around the trail for guests to find on subsequent hikes.

Nature Hike: We’ll take a nature walk with the goats (if they are agreeable) and see what we can see is popping up in field and woodland.  This is a good time to place your rocks and to make cairns for marking the trail.

Bonfire: Marshmallows, stories, and songs around the fire – however the spirit moves.

SUNDAY:

Yoga Session: We’ll warm up with some yoga and set our intentions for the day.

Practical Permaculture:  We’ll play an Engle Matrix RPG to help us solve an environmental or permaculture design problem.

Recycling and Upcycling Projects: Making a fence from pallets and raised beds from metal roof panels.

Lunch

Making Seed Balls: We’ll work on making seed balls to take home.  Seed balls can be set or thrown anywhere – even in an urban environment. Ours will be filled with native wildflower seed, so they won’t disturb wildlife or habitat.

Volunteer Appreciation Ceremony: At the end of the day, we will have a brief ceremony to thank volunteers for their hard work and dedication. Door prizes, too!

Mark your calendars and join us for two days filled with fun, purpose, and community spirit. We can’t wait to see you on the farm!
