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!
While this is a free community event ~ donations are (joyfully) accepted ~ with a goal to provide scholarships to enable 5 low-income individuals to attend a workshop this year !
What to expect:
- 6:00 pm (5p Winter Hours) Meet in the main house.for the GUIDED TOUR the Strawbale Studio buildings & projects (If you prefer,you can browse the resource books, wander the land, or socialize)
- 7:30 pm (Winter 6pish) Potluck meal followed by a Bonfire, or gather around the wood stove fire in the Strawbale Studio, wander the buildings and land.
What to bring:
- Bring food to share. We do a “go around” before the meal, so you can share what you know about your food. There is a wide variety in eating styles. All are welcome. Bring something you enjoy.
- Bring your own plates and utensils if you can.
- Dress for the outdoors, and bring a flashlight if you can!
- Bring your musical instruments you like to play.
- Promote Local Economy …. if you would like. Bring things to sell or barter.
