Community Appreciation Day (FREE)

10:00am to 6:00pm

Programming category: 

For the second time in 2019, Earthdance is throwing open its doors for honoring and receiving community members of all kinds. Join us for a day of community celebration and appreciation! Whether you've been to Earthdance a hundred times or never before, we welcome your presence on the Earthdance land and in the Earthdance community.

We will gather together to make apple treats from our orchard, celebrate our garden bounty, tell stories, and dance into the evening with amazing musicians. We are yearning to celebrate you and all that you've given (or may give) to this growing, ever-changing place! Join us for the whole day or drop in as you like. Families welcome.

11am–12:30pm Forest Walk (tree identification tour with Bruce Hooke & forest bathing practice with Deirdre Morris)
12:30–2:30pm Lunch (Fall garden bounty cookout & apple treat-making)
2:30–3:30pm Storytelling Circle
3:30–4pm Earthdance Updates (what happened this past year, renovations update & what's on the horizon)

Email to stay overnight.

The value of this event is $40–75. Please consider making a donation in any amount to help support free community events at Earthdance.

As we gather to connect, we acknowledge that Earthdance rests on the ancestral land of the Agawams, Pocumtuc, Nipmuck, Wabanaki Confederacy, and the Mohican Indians "People of the waters that are never still," specifically, the Stockbridge-Munsee Band. We intend to keep them present in our thoughts throughout the day.
