How would you like to go home with enough garlic for almost an entire year? Are you looking to get away from the city for a weekend and camp out on your very own farm? Well, here’s your chance! Celebrate summer with us at this year’s solstice / garlic braiding party on Saturday, June 23th at 2:00 p.m. to Sunday, June 24th at 11:00 a.m.
Nigel will teach you how to harvest and braid your own garlic, and each person can leave with one braid of garlic for free! You will also have a chance to walk around the farm to see the summer crops and chickens and eat ripe strawberries. In the evening you are welcome to join us for a potluck dinner followed by a campout. Nigel’s twin sons, Andrew and Eric, will grill up grass-fed beef and veggie burgers. (Please e-mail us if you’d like a veggie burger.) Lorraine will provide refreshing Drinkwell Softers to accompany dinner. Please bring a side dish or dessert to share. At night, we will have a campfire in our member garden. Feel free to bring your musical instruments for some entertainment around the fire!
On Sunday morning we will have breakfast for you in the earth-covered farmhouse: Eatwell eggs, delicious tortillas from Micaela’s in Woodland, along with a lot of freshly-brewed Blue Bottle coffee. We will mash a pot of tea as well (remember, Nigel is British!). After breakfast there will be a tour of the farm. We will definitely need help making breakfast and cleaning up in the morning. If you would like to lend us a hand, please send an e-mail to Ashlee at firstname.lastname@example.org.

This is always a fun event where you can relax while getting a real sense of where your food is grown. If you cannot spend the night on the farm, you are still invited to participate in the garlic harvesting and braiding. But if you can camp on the farm, it is sure to be a memorable experience! You are welcome to bring guests, but please remember that this event will fill up quickly.
