We will work together from Saturday, October 14 to Friday, October 20. Arrive Friday, October 13 and settle in - Or, arrive the day that works for you! Come for a short time or stay for the week. Please bring gear for garden work, building work and all types of weather. Kick off the week with us at 9 a.m. Saturday morning for our community welcome circle. We will gather each morning at 9 a.m. to begin our days in community together.
Jenne Newman and her family, Chris Giffen and Clara Lindstrom, Jim and Donna Simpson, and Gwen Dell'Anno will share leadership throughout the week, and create opportunities to engage in community activities, music, conversation and contemplation. Accommodation is available at no charge and we will share some potluck meals. As well, Columbia Hall is the setting for the highly popular local NaramataSlow Harvest Supper on Sunday, October 15th.
