Our Community Work Day

Take Care of Our Community day is one of the more popular events in our intentional community. Everyone selects a task or two from a list. Signs need painting, road shoulders need clearing, weeds need pulling, and so forth.

The day begins with homemade rolls and coffee in the morning, and ends with a dessert potluck and a slideshow of ourselves doing the work of the community.

Lisa and I chose to prepare lunch for everyone. (Karen was exhausted from chemotherapy and slept through most of the event). We teamed up with our neighbors David and Jocelyn. Jocelyn had devised recipes for wraps with all kinds of good things in them, from turkey to goat cheese. We spent the night before and day of the event rolling wraps, hundreds of them. We also prepared fruit salad and other goodies, which you can see in the photos.

More than half of our community of 55 adults and 45 kids turned out for the event.
