Post-Sandy Clean up and work day at Seven Arrows!

After two weeks of extensive clean up here at Seven Arrows, we still have more to do. We're quite close to completing the task of removing fallen trees, moving debris to dumpsters and restoring the farm and retreat to it's original state. We could use your help getting there!

We'll also be cultivating our farm garden beds at this time, so all hands on deck! Will you come to assist us?

There will be rooms available for all who come for the weekend to help. You will be fed delicious vegetarian meals as well! All you need to do is show up with work clothes and work gloves and we'll take care of the rest.

We recommend taking the Seastreak Ferry from Battery Park or 35th Street to Conner's Highlands. Check out the schedule here: http://www.seastreak.com/nynjschedules.aspx

If you have any questions, please post to the Facebook event wall!

Animal housing build is GO!

Good news: we started building the goat, rabbit and chicken housing this weekend! We constructed out the skeleton of the structures with the gals from Domestic Construction but there is more work to do next weekend! If any folks in the NYC/NJ area would like to come lend a hand, please let us know...bring a tent and we'll feed you and keep you busy and happy! You can even hold one of these guys for a bit!

More updates soon!!

Meg and Neil and the Seven Arrows family!
