(Degree of participation is up to you; more interested in sheering, stay in the barn; learning to spin up your alley, join us in the house. *Beginner knitting and pattern reading will be covered.  The shawl will be a group project.  Those who have a wheel would be encouraged to bring them. Experienced knitters are also welcome.)


We are a community that thrives on locally grown food produced in ways that are good for our health and the health of our land, water, and air
