BORN to ReWILD!
Annual May Day Celebration
Saturday April 29, 2023
Amidst environmental crisis, there are many small Acts of Restorative Kindness (ARK) each of us can do for Planet Earth.
TOGETHER WE CAN BE THE ARK!
“If you want to save the Planet, start with your own patch of it.”
– Mary Reynolds, Nature Activist, Author, Founder of WeAreTheArk.org
Savor an afternoon of family friendly fun at the farm, discovering how to ARK:
~ Explore the rewilded areas of our fields, forest, marshes, and ponds.
~ Join a scavenger hunt to find new plant and animal species who have arrived!
~ Prepare to create your own ARK - even in a pot or window box.
~ Create May Crown and welcome spring with a Maypole Dance.
~ Gather with kindred spirits over a potluck supper.
~ Enjoy the vast vistas that surround the farm.
