About the event
Join us at the Homestead to share food, learn about the land and the people involved. On the first Friday of the month, we host a community potluck open to all on the back lawn of our farmhouse. We ask that you try to bring a dish to share, but most importantly bring yourself!
Come early (or stay late) for our potluck workshop series and connect firsthand to the seasons of our working farm. You can attend just one, or both of these programs.
- 6 PM - 8:00 PM : First Friday Community Potluck
- 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM : Dark Skies Workshop
This month’s workshop is on Dark Skies with astronomer Nat Barber, and we’re in store for a stellar astronomical event. As darkness falls, the planet Venus will meet with the star cluster The Pleiades (known as the Seven Sisters)- which happens only every 8 years. Bring a blanket and gather with us on the lawn of the farmhouse around the fire as we look through the telescope and learn about the wonders before our eyes. Through the evening Nat will share stargazing basics, no previous experience is necessary to appreciate the beauty of these extraordinary constellations.
