For the time being, we have cancelled our June workshop, but we are moving forward with our volunteer day on June 13th (see info below). As we move forward, we will continue to assess the situation and decide what is best. Check back here for more updates.

VOLUNTEER DAY!

Join us next Saturday for our first volunteer day of the season! We will be meeting at the CSC community gardens to work on various land projects like harvesting early crops, continued planting of our new three-sister bed, and some general land clean up. We want to encourage families with children and volunteers of all ages to participate; any and all contribution is valued. Community and co-operation is what we’re all about! For those who haven’t seen it before, we will be doing a CSC land tour at 11:15 A.M and sharing our work. Light refreshments of snacks, iced tea, lemonade, and water will be served to keep our bodies nourished and hydrated!

We ask that participants respect social distancing guidelines and take the proper steps to keep each other safe.

Parking info: Meet at the green barn west of the Stelle entrance on Stelle Rd (3800N) and park to the left of the driveway. If there are no spots available there, park along the south side of the street.  

Appreciation Barbeque!

6 P.M. - 9 P.M. at the CSC Earth Shelter

Come back in the evening for a BBQ and bonfire at the cabin by the pond. We will have hot dogs, veggie dogs, fruit salad and chips for everyone. If you can, bring side dishes or drinks for sharing. We want to show our appreciation for all the support we receive from the community; we couldn’t do this without you!
