That’s what the Picnic Potlucks at the Organic Farm School look and feel like! Co-hosted by the Organic Farm School, Whidbey Institute, Aldermarsh, and Whidbey Island Waldorf School, the location, tables, and chairs were provided. Everything else was made possible by the energy and generosity of those who “saved the date.”

Last night, more than 175 people from the island and beyond came out simply to enjoy a beautiful place with nice people. Just a few announcements. A LOT of food. Some friendly competition at the corn hole boards. And tours of the vegetable fields.

Life gets so full, and true conversations can be rare. But a potluck creates space to breathe, look around, eat foods you might not otherwise try, celebrate each other, and talk. Really talk. 

No particular agenda, just neighbors coming together to recognize how lucky they are to have each other and to be able to eat good food in these crazy times. We are so genuinely grateful to be in the middle of it all here in the Maxwelton Valley!
