Annual Work Party
Date: June 23, 2020 - June 27, 2020
Location: Monticello College Campus
This is our fifth Annual Work Party and we will keep offering them as long as friends of the college continue to offer their love and service.
For those new to this event, we spend a week learning, working and playing, eating wholesome food together, and developing awesome relationships.
Parents bring their families here to have a working vacation, to spend time in the wilderness, and to bond as a family through the act of service. We could not build this campus without our volunteers – thank you.
The 2020 MC Work Party will focus on terraforming the campus to stop erosion and increase rain water retention. We will be building a 2,400-foot long berm and swale at the top of our campus.
We will perform significant machine earth moving prior to the arrival of volunteers who will be utilized in hand grooming the Berm and Swale and possible tree planting.
In addition to the Berm and Swale work, we will provide a couple of classroom lectures on permaculture and a workshop on building gambians or check dams. (A workshop/lecture series of this caliber goes for $200 a person)
We have limited space at this event, so please contact us if you plan to attend or have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
Each family is asked to pay $150 for the week to help defray the cost of meals.
$150 will be charged to your card.
