Work Party at Tolstoy Farm

Saturday, June 14th (all day) and Sunday the 15th (8am 'til 12:30 potluck lunch)

Come out and help restore the creek, check out a beautiful organic farm and intentional community, and get out of the city for the weekend!

Camping is totally an option... There is also plenty of floor in my house to crash on.

In Laura's words:
Bring stuff for a potluck lunch, and bring gloves, loppers, pruning saws. Anyone wanting green willow, dogwood or alder for craft projects or the like, this is a great chance as we have to cut it anyway.There will also be wild rose, mock orange (not true mock orange) and clematis, nettles, comfrey, and other possibly prickly stuff.. so wear protective clothes. Our goal will be to open up the creek channel about 10 feet high and 10 feet wide so that both the water will have a clear channel to flow and carry debris away and so that when the mini excavator comes it can get through without having to rip plants and shrubs out.

We very much appreciate any time and energy you can offer to help out with this.

Please RSVP to 509-725-0317 for info and directions. If a bunch of folks are coming from Spokane, we may try to connect you for carpooling as it's green! and we have limited parking, so we will need spread out the parking in several areas if there's lots of cars.
