June Gathering, Summer, and New Schedule
- Hey everyone! Happy Summer!
So last month we had some great fun and success changing the monthly gathering to Sunday. A lot of us have Sundays free, so we'll try again to meet on Sunday, June 27th. Does anyone have any preference on places? Douglas State Forest was nice, but it had to parking charge which isn't preferable. My residence is always an option, and there are a lot of great places to forage around here.
I've also talked with several people about having weekly get-togethers each Sunday. One of the major ways in which people participate in community in this country is through attending weekly services at church. While some of us are church-going Christians, we seem to be a group made up a lot of people who don't. A lot of us are easily described as animists in belief. So, to build this sort of community regularly, I suggest we meet every week on Sunday, and take that time to learn to directly participate in our world and lives. I'd love to see us having regular wild food lunches, sharing new skills we learn, sharing music and art, and in general forming our rewilding culture.
So, what do you say? Shall we continue to meet the next Sunday, July 4th? Or do we want to move it to Saturday due to the holiday?
With love and rage,
Daniel N. Quiray
