Fox & Roy: Laura Fox (of Fox & Fern) and Whitney Roy (of OldHat Stringband) will be teaming up to bring us some sweet tunes.

ART & POETRY!
Jerry Beck from the Revolving Art Museum will be here with his ART POETRY MOBILE. The REVOLVING MUSEUM is a nomadic cultural organization that transforms abandoned and or under-utilized public space through collaborative community art projects.

The Revolving Museum’s (TRM) Public Art Poetry Mobile is a traveling public art project and educational program transforming a vintage 1952 Ford pick-up truck and 16 foot-long flat-bed trailer into a gallery space for art, poetry, and performances.

ORIGINAL MEHNDI ART:
Sunyata, Shug & Kaya from Sat Manav Ashram and Sacred Arts & Tattoos will be onsite doing Mehndi “tattoos”. Mehndi is the art of applying henna to the skin in intricate designs. The henna is non-toxic and stains the skin, leaving behind a beautiful pattern. Mehndi Designs range from $5 – $25.

WHAT TO BRING?
Please bring a dish and/or drinks to share or some cash to donate for the pizza, music, or art. This is a Community supported event.

A Dinner Mess Kit if possible (We will have compostable plates, but please help us in our efforts to be sustainable by minimizing waste and bring your own dinner kit.)

Instruments for an open jam around the fire from 9-10pm

Blanket or chairs

Children Welcome. This event is a Family friendly event, but children do need to be supervised due to the nature of the property. There is poison ivy off the trails and in some portion of the woods.

WHAT NOT TO BRING…
No pets please. We love animals, but we have chickens roaming free and a very protective livestock guardian dog named Shasta

THIS IS A SUSTAINABLE EVENT.
We will be composting all food waste or feeding it to our happy hens. There will be mason jars for beverages & compostable plates and forks. But, if you can bring your own Dinner Mess Kit, that will further decrease the amount of waste that is produce and would be much appreciated! And please take your potluck bowl with you when you leave. We could start a small store with the amount of items left behind here…

COST:
FREE for SHILO FARM MEMBERS (Donations greatly appreciated for the music, art & food …if you can’t contribute to the potluck).

$15 for the GENERAL PUBLIC
