Gathering of the Guilds Permaculture Weekend is One Month Away!

The GOTG is only a month away, and we have some updates and reminders for folks.

The Gathering of The Guilds takes Place Sep 14-16 at Harmony Park Music Garden (79503 298th St., Clarks Grove, MN 56016) http://bit.ly/NpDr4B

Gates open at Noon on Friday Sep 14– Come early to set up your camp and help us create the event.
Remember-This is a COMMUNITY CREATED EVENT. We will provide the infrastructure and logistical planning-YOU provide the knowledge. ALL SKILL LEVELS ENCOURAGED. This gathering will offer local permaculturists, farmers, gardeners, activists, and others a chance to spend a weekend sharing skills, making connections, and learning. We are asking a $20 donation to cover food, toilets, and site rental.

If you plan to attend PLEASE RSVP to gotg2012@centerfordeepecology.org and let us know you're coming so we can plan for food, etc. You can also find us on Facebook at Facebook.com/centerfordeepecolgy.

If you plan to facilitate a workshop or skillshare, please let us know what you want to talk about and how much time you need. Also let us know if you need anything like power, projector, etc. We plan to have workshops all day Saturday and half of Sunday.

A schedule will be posted to our FB and website the first week of September. We will also email to anyone on our mailing list at the Center For Deep Ecology website. Tentatively it looks like this-
Friday Site opens at Noon-food available at 5pm-Films in the evening.
Saturday Breakfast 8am Morning Sessions 9-1pm--lunch 1-2—Afternoon sessions 2-6pm--dinner 6-7
Sunday Morning sessions 9-11—Brunch 11-12—Afternoon Sessions 12-3pm—Park closes at 5pm

Food- We will provide 5 vegan/vegetarian meals (with meat options) from Friday evening through Sunday. Folks with food issues need to come prepared in case our menu can't accommodate you. We are also asking folks to bring items from their gardens for the kitchen. We will be asking for volunteers to help with meal cleanups and prep. Signup will be available at the Kitchen

Camping- The site has RV accommodations (please RSVP) and tent sites spread throughout. Bring a tent(duh!), clothes for the weather, and anything you need for the weekend. We also ask you to bring a chair (for sitting!) and your own cup. Please don't bring your dog!

Skillshares- This is a Community Created Event! We are all experts at something, right? Bring your love of obscure composting techniques, cutting edge rotation methods, or other Permaculture concept and share it with all of us! So far, we have some mushroom workshops, seed saving discussions, plant walks, site tours, and hands on canning demonstrations planned. More as you reply

If you have any questions,to RSVP, etc please email us at gotg2012@centerfordeepecology.org
