·       Please pre-register!  We must know you are coming in order to provide enough     food! It also helps us a great deal if you register early so we have some funds to work with to create this gathering!  Cost increases for those registering on-site.

*  Registration Maximum- We must cap this event at 120 people; therefore, it is important to register in advance so we can save your spot!

·       Make checks payable to RSVP.

·       Volunteering- All participants are expected to volunteer at least 2 hours during the event.  Volunteering is an important way to help keep the gathering inexpensive and operating smoothly.  

·       We welcome children at the gathering and encourage them to participate. Parents with young children are expected to personally help with Child Care.  Let us know if you are bringing your children (if we have enough kids, we will offer a work-trade position for someone to coordinate the kids in the afternoons).

        It is not possible to “just pay for meals.”  All who plan to attend must help with the costs

of the gathering and the facilities.

       ALL registrations will be confirmed by either phone or email, so please be sure to include a phone number (preferably one with voice mail) or an email address that you will check. 

       Some unattended “tradeshow”-type table space will be available to sell your art, crafts, and other wares, etc. Items should be hand-made or applicable to sustainable living.  There is no charge, but donations are greatly appreciated.

* There will also be a table for seed swapping, so please bring anything you would like to share!
