I mean just look at the amazing line up! I am really lucky to be able to host events like these!

Just like last time we are asking people to park along the street, we are also using the street over since out projected attendance has doubled since the last event!

Some of our attendees are also local green vendors and will be offering their goods for sale. We will have a butcher with pastured raised meat, local candles, and other products!

Just like last time this is of course a potluck meaning bring a dish, or some drinks!

We are so excited and nervous about this whopper of an event!

Shoot me a email, or RSVP on facebook if you want to join the fun! :)
