St. Patrick blessing our pile of freshly cut wood (Cartoon by Keith Jones Pomeroy)
Arrive at 9:30 and be welcomed with steaming coffee and fragrant tea, fresh-from-the-oven muffins, and friends new and old.
Work will begin at 10 am.
Work where you will find it most enjoyable:
- by Deer Spring Creek: Jeff Feaga, the land steward for the RRF, will lead us in clearing invasive species
- in the garden: preparing beds, getting the garden ready to welcome spring;
- within the serene and simply beautiful Retreat House: deep spring cleaning;
- under the trees: splitting and stacking wood.
At 1:00 we take a break, spread the table, eat, talk, and rest. Then, replenished in body and spirit, we start work anew at 2:00 and end at 4:00 (or so). If you choose, you may stay as our guest on Saturday night in the Retreat House.
