Fall Work Weekend & Community Town Hall

September 13, 2013 - 5:00pm to September 15, 2013 - 3:00pm

Programming category: 

This year, in recognition of the indescribable role that community members play in our livelihood, Earthdance is holding a first-ever FALL Work Weekend & Community Town Hall to bring our community together.

It has long been evident that the Earthdance community holds the key to Earthdance's vitality and longevity. Though internally an organism constantly shifting and churning, Earthdance has been grounded by the constancy, strength, and commitment of its surrounding family.

This Fall Work Weekend & Community Town Hall will honor the way that our neighbors, friends, and family sustain our organization. Let's get down and dirty, and together, support the ongoing well-being of our beloved gathering place!

The weekend includes:

Staff Send-Off/Welcome-In Party & Potluck | Friday, September 13th 7-9pm
We will be saying goodbye to departing staff: Matt LaSalle, Operations Director; Ayla Rector, Head Chef & Kitchen Manager; Kalyan Uprichard, Buildings & Grounds Manager; Monel Chang, Volunteer Executive Assistant; and Sean Kearney, Gardener (read their staff bios here).
