Join us mid-Winter and Spring 2019 for one or more of our Work Weekends!
You provide the energy, we’ll provide a bed and several good meals. Anyone eighteen (18) and older, and who has been to the farm before, is welcome, as long as they’re willing to focus on the work at hand. It is not a time for children, young teens or toddlers, or friends that just want to observe. Bring your work gloves! We have space for up to 10 people each weekend.
2019 Work Weekend Dates
Folks are encouraged to arrive Friday evening after dinner, as the main work day is Saturday with projects starting in the early morning.
- Willing Hearted Work Weekend I – February 16-18, 2019: Trail blazing, burning brush, planting seeds in the greenhouse, etc. Since it’s President’s Day Monday, thought we could squeeze 2 days work out of you!
- Willing Hearted Work Weekend II – March 22-24, 2019: Trail blazing, burning brush, transplanting starts in the garden, painting cabin trim, etc.
- Willing Hearted Work Weekend III-April 26-28, 2019: Trail blazing, transplanting starts in the garden, etc.
You’re welcome to come on your own, or bring folks that would love to put some effort into trails, clearing out camp, burning brush, step building and the like. In fact, we will be pruning roses the weekend of February 23-24. Marion Adams, a former staff member who’s crazy about roses, will be here pruning, and showing/telling others how to prune. Rose Pruning Gloves or Bee Keeping Gloves are encouraged, along with a good pair of pruning shears.
How to Sign Up
Please go to 2019 Willing Hearted Work Weekend Registration Request Form to sign up. Again, as space is limited for each of these weekends, we recommend you sign up as early as possible.
If these dates don’t work for you, and there are three or four folks that would like to come up to put time and effort into Emandal, let us know! We’d be glad to see if any other dates could work out. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Past Work Weekends…
Last spring, some folks came up to work on trails, build steps in Camp, make soap and paint trail signs! It was a most productive weekend…. one we’d like to duplicate a few times over!
Admittedly, some of the folks ended up with poison oak, their muscles screamed for mercy, but they ate heartily and slept extremely well.
Thank you all for your time and hard work!
