Reunite and renew the community and grounds of Earthdance

April 27, 2012 - 12:00pm to April 29, 2012 - 7:00pm

Programming category: 

This is a time when we gather to reunite and renew the community and grounds of Earthdance.  Come to connect with others and help to work on the land, clean up the grounds and prepare for Summer!  

As we mark the 25th anniversary of Earthdance this is an excellent time to reflect on what we have built together, build sustainable infrastructure, talk and plan for the future, and renew our collective commitment to this community.  And of course dance, play music and improvise, tell stories and share amongst the generations that have cherished this special place.  If you are a part of Earthdance or want to be, please join us for this important weekend of connection and renewal. 

FREE food, housing, dancing & community time, in exchange for your love & labor
