What to bring

  • Food:    The food situation may vary from class to class, so look at the course description.  In general, 

In some cases participants will be asked to bring their own bag lunch or a snack to share. For the potlucks, bring something you like. For extended workshops we often do “food sharing” ~ see below.

Food Sharing: Food will be both “provided and shared”.  Fees have been kept very low, and scholarships/worktrade provided in some cases.  Therefore, we often ask that food & food preparation be something that “we do together”.  This has been done for past events, and it works great. 

We ask that you contribute by bringing some food toward our common meals.  Look around your fridge and pantry, and  find something you can share . . .  perhaps a bag of apples, some potatoes or vegies, maybe fruit or uncooked grains, granola, peanut butter, beans, etc.  Just bring some things, and we will make tasty meals from our common bounty.  You might even want to bring the “fixings” for a meal you want to share.   We will take turns, in small groups, preparing and cleaning up after the meals. We have done this many times for activities, and it works great. “WorkTrade” folks will also help with meals.  If you have something special you want to have for yourself,  bring that as well.  We have some natural teas & coffee. If you decide to donate anything to the household, that is appreciated but not necessary…such as tea, toilet paper or money!  We tend to eat organic food, and styles range from vegarian/vegan to omnivore & carnivore.  Generally we eat vegetarian, and if you want some meat, you could bring it with you.

  • Clothing:  Bring work clothes that are comfortable. Gloves are good.  We also have some here.  Bring outdoor clothes that will allow you to be in nature for an extended amount of time.  This might mean an extra sweater, jacket, hat, gloves, rain gear, boots, warm sox, sweat pants, snow pants.  Play it by the season.  Best to be prepared for possible conditions.
  • Overnight accommodations are usually available.  For events at the Strawbale Studio some simple indoor lodging is available (beds & cots) or unlimited camping space outdoors. Contact Deanne for arrangements.  Bring your own bedding and personal items, towels, if you can.  We try to provide a non-snoring space for those who need quiet.  🙂
  • Facilities: There is a main kitchen with a refrigerator and freezer.  There are 3 indoor bathrooms, each with toilet, bath & shower, washing machine, clothes line & dryer.
