Work Party this weekend, and Nov 18

ETA: Correction: Make that Sunday, November 18th. And this saturday, the 3rd, 11 a.m. until time to get ready for the Witches’ Ball.

Sunflower River will host two more work parties in November, on the 3rd & 17th 18th.

This coming Saturday, Nov 3rd, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m., we will be working on the greywater system (breaking up the ground around the house, digging the trenches for the pumice wick), finishing construction on the composting toilet, and setting up both sets of compost bins (digging & building). Other available things to do include hauling deadwood out of what will soon be the ritual area, stacking wood in the newly-designated woodpile area, painting the pumphouse, shredding weeds for the composter, digging/building the fire circle for upcoming parties & jams such as the Appreciation Dinner/Party on the 10th, and more playing with wire on/around the chicken coop, for further houdini-chicken-proofing.

Apologies for the short notice on this weekend! We just decided, hey, we’re going to be working around the farm all weekend, we might as well let all those people who keep offering to come down know that we’re doing that, just in case this is a good time. :) We’ll have a big pot of beans going for lunch, and some snackables for sustenance during the day.

And, we’ll also be having another regular work party on Sunday, November 18th, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Whatever we haven’t gotten done from the above list will still be on there, with additional possibilities of clearing the deck area for the yurt deck (busting up the foundation of the old broken one and removing it), thinning scrubby little elm trees away from the soon-to-be ritual area, weeding behind the barn, and whatever else comes up between now and then. There’s already always something. :)

A million Thanks to everyone who has already come out to play/help at work parties! We appreciate your involvement so much!
