We just completed three days of working on the Elderberry common house - completing the soffit, putting siding on the laundry room, nailing hurricane ties and doing trim work. Today we had our monthly meeting and had a great discussion about how we will use and pay for energy in the community (and we had some great potluck food and conversation as well!).
For those interested in meeting the Elderberry and Potluck Farm communities, you are most welcome to come to our 22nd annual Halloween Jamboree! It is Saturday, October 20th from 4pm - midnight. We have a band (The Gravy Boys), pig pickin' and vegetarian chili, cider pressing, hayride, pumpkin carving, and great singing around the fire. Families are welcome. It's a fabulous party and a great way to learn about living and playing together in community. The Jamboween will be at 568 Potluck Farm Road, Rougemont, NC 27572. Bring a potluck dish, a flashlight, a chair and warm clothes.
Our next workday at the Elderberry site will be Sunday October 28th. Let us know if you would like to come out to see the site, meet other members, work with us or just have lunch and hang out!
