Winter Working Bee June 2021

June 18 @ 4:00 pm - June 20 @ 12:00 pm


Our Solstice Working Bees are such a great part of our schedule. It is a lovely opportunity to come together as a community and share in our combined energy and skills to work on the land, in the gardens and around the buildings. Most of the work is outdoors and there is always a need for a team in the kitchen. After all our hard work together we also have a wonderful celebration of the Solstice together.
