Spring Work Weekend & Community Meeting 2020 (FREE)

May 8, 2020 - 5:00pm to May 10, 2020 - 3:00pm

Programming category: 


Earthdance's annual Spring Work Weekend is one of two weekends a year where people from all walks of life come together to have a hand in the 'creative living project.' Gardening, cleaning, dancing, building, and eating side by side, community members pour their care into this shared home and create meaningful connections with each other, themselves, and the land.

Work parties take place all day Saturday and and Sunday. Saturday also includes Earthdance's Annual Community Meeting where we share news and updates about Earthdance's finances, programming, buildings & grounds, and more.

We invite those who have a long history with Earthdance, those who have never visited before, and all those in between. Find out more about: What To Expect at Earthdance.
