Our 5th Annual Spring Picnic was a wonderful success! Despite the occasional threat of rain, around 60 pagans joined together to both learn about the Earthhouse Project and to celebrate our Earthhouse community. With the skies only briefly dark, we enjoyed pleasant weather.
With Lou as our expert at the grill, food was aplenty and we all enjoyed a virtually endless supply of hotdogs and other picnic fare. Later in the evening, there was marshmallow toasting as many gathered around the campfire.
16th Midsummer Gather: Bella Luna

Join us for some great food! Great conversations!
We have rented the building, so rain or shine we will have this event!
If you’re so inclined, you’re welcome to bring a dish to share. If so, please be prepared to either label your dish or to recite its ingredients so those with food preferences or sensitivities can make informed choices.
We have access to the fire ring!
AND … if the weather cooperates, since we’ve got the fire ring (and perhaps the canopy for part of the time), we can Drum, Dance, Sing, Converse, and otherwise build our community.
