For 2017, Sunflower River has decided to take a “jubilee” year, in the old sense of the word — a year to rest, restore ourselves, our spaces & our systems, and our community. So while we will continue to have as many work days as usual, we will not be posting them on facebook, or sending out emails about them, unless there is a specifically community-oriented goal that day, such as the Art Parties for the wall, and the days on which we get ready for the big community events we host. In general, the idea here is to give you a break from our constant “ask,” and to give us a break by scaling back, for one year, our constant promotion and outreach.
If you would like to come down and participate in an SR work party, you are still entirely welcome to do so! This page will be updated at least quarterly, and you are always welcome to contact us directly for info.
