The Barbed Wire Ball,

Ekone Ranch Work Parties

These weekends, held once a month (except during summer camp season), are a lovely way to get to know the community and do conservation, forestry, and garden projects on the land. Work Parties start at 5pm on Friday, with dinner and an overview of the weekend, then Saturday is full of service projects, with shared meals and evening relaxation time. Sunday breakfast is followed by more project work, and then folks head back into the world, hopefully fueled up with inspiration and satisfaction of work well done!

If you’d like to be on the Work Party email list or to RSVP for a particular work party weekend, please email Shonie at shonie@ekone.org.
