Arrive to the gazebo at 8:30am for breakfast, tea, coffee, and a chance to meet everyone. Starting at 9:00, we will assemble outdoors, with a view of the flower fields, and write on a prompt to warm us up. We will then have a two-hour block of time to work on a longer project of our choice in a variety of outdoor/highly-ventilated spaces. A lunch break in the gazebo will give us another chance to socialize and enjoy delicious seasonal food. After lunch, we will have another two-hour writing block, followed by sharing our progress. During this two-hour block, Louise will offer 15 minute consults on attendee's projects. At 3:30 we'll enjoy some dessert, with another chance to socialize. At 4:00 we'll step into the high tunnels to cut flowers and create our own arrangements. Angora Goats and Peanut Butter Jack the royal palm turkey will be on the farm and happy to greet you!
