Saturday, March 10th — work day. 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Come join Sunflower River for a day in the sunshine! We’ll be tackling a variety of spring cleaning projects — getting the land ready for the Ostara festival (which is on the 17th), cleaning the brooders for baby birds, and tidying up all the ritual grounds.
