Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Please plan to join us for Peacehaven’s 2017 Farm Walk, a fundraising and a “friend” raising event at the farm. We invite walkers of all ages and abilities to experience a beautiful afternoon at the farm, strolling through our rolling pastures, lush woodlands and organic gardens. You might even see a few cows, a few chickens or a scarecrow!

Bring a few friends to join you as we get some fresh air and exercise while exploring our 89 acres that include Susan’s View - our first residence, a permanent home for adults with special needs - and our barn that includes a 17KW photovoltaic system and provides electricity for Susan’s View.

The course is 1-2 miles long - you choose how long you want to stroll! Walkers, wheelchairs and strollers are welcome! The trail includes a gravel path -- jogger/off-road strollers/tires are suggested. (We love it when service dogs visit, but otherwise please leave pets at home.) Please join us to celebrate our community where the values of service, sharing and recognition of every individual’s gifts offer a model for our world.

This event will occur rain or shine. We reserve the right to cancel in extreme circumstances. In that event, there will be no refund and your registration fee will be used as a donation to Peacehaven Community Farm.

FAQs

Is this a fundraiser or just a walk event?
Please help us with fundraising! After registering, follow the steps to launch your personal fundraiser! You can join an existing team, or you can start your own team. Our goal is to raise $45,000 to continue our mission of connecting people with special needs to their community through shared living and the work of a sustainable farm. We need your help in reaching our goal!

I've never done fundraising before. How do I do it?
The site makes it easy! Launch your personal fundraiser by joining a team from the list or by starting a new team. Then set your team fundraising goal - $100 is a good place to start if you are not sure. Be sure to share a sentence or two about why you are joining the Farm Walk and what Peacehaven means to you! Make it as personal as possible. When your team page is set up, send the link to your friends and family via social media or email. Then watch the donations roll in!

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
All ages and abilities are welcome! Adult registration fee is for ages 13 & up. Youth registration fee is for ages 12 and younger. When you arrive please visit the check-in table to pick up your t-shirt!

What are my parking options at the event?
There will be plenty of parking at the farm, including designated handicapped spots. If you are able to carpool with friends & family, please do. We always like to encourage community and being kind to Mother Earth!

What should I bring to the event?
Bring a reusable water bottle to quench your thirst as we are a zero-waste community. Walkers, wheelchairs and strollers are welcome. Jogger/off-road strollers/tires are suggested. Service dogs are welcome, but otherwise please leave pets at home.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
