Work Party Weekends

Next Work Party is Sat June 10 & Sun Jun 11th  – a 2 Day extravaganza

Thank you so much all over again to those of you who made our 3rd Work Party!  We were able to take down the structure we’re going to use for our Kitchen and Banquet Hall.  I can’t say it enough, but all of you are so wonderful and we are truly blessed to have so many of our Summerstar Family share in the creation of what’s shaping up to be an amazing sacred space for us.

If you’re in for our next weekend work party, We do need you to please RSVP to Kendall opalstar@hotmail.com with the subject line of Summerstar 23. Site location & Details will be given to those who are able to join us.  This time we’d like to have a head count so we can plan our activities.  If you are able to participate on both days, you are welcome to stay the night and camp out.  Or, come work as little or much as you are able, we’re happy for anything.

If you do plan on camping, please plan on bringing breakfast items and snacks for yourself and to share. 

We are still asking for tree seedlings, small trees, bushes, shrubbery and all sorts of plantable vegetation.  If it grows in Washington and can be transplanted, bring it and plant it!!  If in doubt, when RSVP’g to Kendall, she can give you more details. 

This is What’s Planned

Tree Transplant & Planting of seedlings (see above)

Forest “cleaning”

Continue with the berm (flat strip of land/raised bank to provide us some privacy from the road) creation and other cool stuff

Wire Fence removal (more of it)

Can you work with wood and make things (like simple tables, and such) if given directions?  If so, please let us know!

YOU are active, take direction and follow directions well, work well with others, are in good shape, are mobile, can take lots of stooping, bending, shoveling, reaching, hauling, dragging and able to commit to 3-6 hours. 

PLEASE BRING: you’re own work-gloves, GOOD water/mud proof boots, warm clothing/rain gear and a change of clothing, shovels, handheld tree branch saws, garden tools.

WE will provide clear plans and directions, dinner, hot coffee/tea/cider, loads of energy, enthusiasm and massive appreciation!  Super Excited to see you there!

Please note:  Participating in our work parties is a volunteer effort of love, labor and light, we know it takes many hands, enthusiasm and skill and we are so appreciative of your Gift of Time- Thankyou!
