About the event
Please join us for a new tradition we are establishing here at the farm: Friday afternoon family farm hangs + potluck + after dinner community sauna. These gatherings will happen about twice a month and all are welcome. The main purpose is to relax and connect with the farm friends and family, which is basically our mission! Sometimes there will also be a more particular theme around which we will have an activity or conversation, such as a musical performance, a documentary screening, art making, a big issue/political discussion, a guided meditation...you name it (literally). Right now we have four of these on the calendar for 2023 and we may add more before the weather turns.
Please be sure to RSVP (on this page) for everyone in your group and indicate whether you would like to join for the sauna as well as the potluck. Here are the details:
What: Chill at the farm and eat good food with friends. Each potluck has a culinary or regional theme. Please try to bring something that fits but don't worry if you're not sure. Fresh and tasty is the main thing. Please bring your own utensils if possible.
July 14: Tex/Mex/Pan Latin America
July 28: Mediterranean and Middle Eastern
August 18: South Asia/Thai/Vietnamese
September 22: Southern BBQ
Where: Gather at the East of Eden Farmhouse, the blue trimmed cedar thing located just before the farmstand at 4968 Patton Rd. Food will be stationed on the southside deck and lawn. We will open up the deck, lawn, kitchen, and bathroom. Please take off shoes before entering the house. Kids and families welcome to wander the farm, forest, and play at the nature preschool.
When: July 14 and 28, August 18, September 22, and possibly more.
4:30 to 6:30pm: Potluck hang and roam around farm
6:30 to 7:30: Interesting activity or group discussion
7:30 to 8:30: Sauna (Room for apporximately 15. Bring a towel to sit on. RSVP required!)
Why: to close your week in a positive intentional way a la shabbat with friends and family; meet interesting people, play, sweat, and hopefully learn something (yes please all of the above!)
