At this month’s 3rd Monday Open Meeting on Monday July 21, we are bringing together several experienced designer/builders in the areas of small-scale, sustainable, affordable housing, for what promises to be a dynamic, synergistic discussion of the possibilities in these areas. We would love to offer Granite Springs as a place where we can evolve an exciting intersection of natural building technologies, community participation, affordability, innovative financing, and educational hands-on workshops.
If these issues are on YOUR mind, this would be a GREAT month to come see and hear how the community plans are coming together. Oh, and share great food and make new friends. The Potluck begins at 6:30 pm with the discussion while we eat. If you don’t have time to prepare food, or if our start time is early for you, come anyway and join in as you are able. More information on our Community page!
We had originally scheduled a Workday and Potluck for tomorrow, June 22nd. We decided to cancel this workday due to the anticipated heat, and our own need to take a day of rest after a very hot and full week on the farm. Stay tuned for details about our next, yet to be scheduled workday!
The Granite Springs Farm Front Porch Music Series continues with a concert by Glenn Sheffield on Saturday May 31st. We’ll begin to gather at 7 PM for a time of visiting with each other and sharing snacks and drinks. This musical evening isn’t a full-fledged potluck, but more of a finger food or light refreshments gathering. If you can bring something to share, please do! At 8 PM, As the sun begins to set, we’ll light the tiki torches and twinkling party lights to set the mood for a relaxed Chatham County evening under the stars. Bring a blanket if you wish to stretch out a bit. We’ll be serenaded by Glenn performing mostly original folk/blues tunes he’s written that reflect his time spent traveling and pondering. He’s played at GSF several times before, and we always get requests to bring him back for more. There is a suggested donation of $10-$20 per person (pay as you are able) to thank Glenn for his beautiful music and thoughtful lyrics. As always, if you don’t have money to contribute, please come anyway. All are welcome, including kids, but please leave the four-legged fur people at home! If it looks like rain, we’ll move the show into the great room of the Community House.
