***HOW Gratitude Week Works…***
This is an appreciation week for those who have helped out at the hempery during planting or in other ways.
Note: If you have never been to the hempery you are still welcome if invited :)
During gratitude week there is less work to do and more fun to be had. The land is at it’s best and we will be hanging out at the beach, rafting, making campfires, etc. There may be small tasks to complete, but the focus is play first and work second.
You are welcome to outdoor camp anywhere you like (tent, RV, whatever) or indoor camping in the heated quonset is also available. We have a futon indoors and can accommodate tents inside if weather gets not nice.
Please ensure to bring warm clothes and clothes for all weather (headlamps etc.)
All food for the gratitude week is co-created. The hempery will supply many things including bottomless hemp coffee, but we are looking to those who are there to help us create lovely meals from lovely ingredients.
You are invited to bring your favorite foods to share or bring something already made. We value community meals and wish to eat together with you.
- Our base for this event is at the west end of the Quonset, not the house
- the Quonset has a compost toilet and is heated so it is comfy
- Cell service is bad at the farm
- Please RSVP with Meg or Luc before you come so we know how many people and when
***What to Bring***
It's summer and although the weather is looking good, please bring warm clothes, good footwear and gloves if you have them.
Also bring all the things you would for camping or a festival such as headlamp, things to roast on fires, bug spray/sunscreen, clothes for rain, clothes for cold, costumes, musical instruments, etc.
If you get lost follow the directions above because we have no cell service to guide you.
Any other questions text or call Meagan at 403 877 7582.
Please call Meg at 403 877 7582 or Luc at 403 589 7006 to RSVP your spot.
Excited to see you :)
