Full Moon Potluck !

Full Moon Potluck !

Join in celebrating together. By this simple process, we reconnect with the elemental beauty of creation and human community.

This is a great time for folks who haven’t been to the Strawbale Studio to visit, tour, and meet others. There are also the “regulars” – neighbors and friends – who frequently attend. There usually is wide age range and a number of children !

Feel free to bring musical instruments …and share your local economy if you wish:  things to sell, your business cards…and such!
