There’s a party in the pasture, and you’re invited!
On Saturday, July 18th, from 10 am to 2 pm, VINE Sanctuary will host a day of fun and games in the back pasture, followed by vegan snacks. Admission is free. Refreshments will be provided, but we ask that you bring your own water bottle. RSVP below, please!
The scenic back pastures of VINE Sanctuary will be the setting for the party.
Pick Up Sticks — Teams will collect fallen branches into brush piles, thereby clearing the pastures and driveways while creating habitat for ground-nesting birds and other wildlife. The team with the biggest pile wins a prize!
Meet in the Middle — Starting at opposite ends, two people (or pairs) will walk the back pasture fence line, looking for breaches and clearing obstructions.
Thistle Mania — Teams will seek and destroy the prickly plants that will take over the pastures if left unchecked. The team with the largest heap of dug-up thistles will win!
Spot the Bare Spot — In this solitary game, individual players will seek out and seed bare patches in the pasture.
Party Favors and Prizes
T-shirts, caps, travel mugs, bumper stickers, books… we’ll be reaching deep into our supply closet for door prizes and awards for the winners of games.
After a few hours of playing the “party games” above, we’ll retreat to a shady spot for refreshments. This will be a great opportunity for members of the extended VINE community to get to know each other better while resting up after working hard for our nonhuman community members.
The back pasture crew will appreciate all the hard work!
RSVP below. (We’ll send directions and other instructions in reply.) If you can’t come, but would like to pitch in for supplies (like seeds, tools, and extra pairs of work gloves) or snacks for our hardworking volunteers, click here to make a quick donation
