We (Danielle, Gray, Kristin, Noel and Trace) at Circle Acres farm are planning a work weekend for May 22nd-24th. We are also calling out for a Crop Mob on Sunday the 24th from 10-3.
We have plenty of camping space available for both Friday and Saturday nights. Parking at the farm is interesting, so please fill vehicles to the max…
Here are some of the things we might get into:
- sheet mulching “lumps” for the pumpkin patch
- removal of privet and bio-char demonstration
- building sheet mulch beds
- prepping land for a living fence
- untangling and testing used drip tape
- plugging mushroom logs
- pulling new electrical wire in the house
- ripping out plumbing
- digging a gray water trench
- building a solar shower
- playing around with cob mixtures
For food, please bring snacks, drinks and whatever you think you might want to have on hand for the weekend. We will cook for the Saturday dinner and Sunday Crop Mob lunch; we’ll do our best to provide for other meals, but any help is appreciated.
Please RSVP as soon as you can and let us know what days you will be at the farm. Also let us know if you have any special needs, dietary or otherwise.  RSVPs can be emailed to [email protected]
One last note - please leave your dogs at home.
