blessing of the fields & volunteer work day


blessing of the fields & volunteer work day

Please join us at Tecolote Farm on Saturday, March 18, 2017, for a Volunteer Work Day. Following the Presidents’ Day tornado here, we not only have weeding and hoeing to do: there is a lot of debris to pick up, piles to burn or put through the wood-chipper, trash to find and pick up, and community to gather and count our many blessings. Hope you can join us!

We’ll begin the day with a Blessing of the Fields at 8:30 am

8:30 AM Rogation (farm & crop blessing) Procession
9:00-1:00 Open Work Day March 18, 2017

First 30 minutes is farm tour/ education.
Make sure all volunteers have needed equipment to go out into the field (water, hat, gloves, tools if needed). Review safety and “field etiquette”
Get to work!
12:30-1:00 Final 30 minutes for celebrating/picnicking
Wear your farm clothes for weeding, cleaning up limbs from the tornado, & general labor. Those with a chainsaw & experience, please bring it!
