~A $50 deposit is required to hold your space and is due by June 30th. The remaining balance is due by the weekend
~We'll be "car camping" in the Green Mountain National Forest, but not in an official campground, meaning accommodations are "rustic." There is no running water or flush toilet.
~The camp site is officially known as "dispersed camping" and there are primitive tent sites and fire pits.
~The site is on a meadowed mountain top with a beautiful view. A cool, boulder-filled, roaring mountain stream runs at the base, along the dirt road we'll use to access the site. Perfect for a swim. The mixed-meadow, early-successional, and spruce and hardwood-dominated forest provides a myriad of micro-habitats and a rich diversity of medicinal plants.
~In case of bad weather the trip will be postponed until the following weekend. Deposits/payments will be refunded if you are unable to make the re-scheduled weekend.
~Folks are responsible for bringing their own food. Saturday night dinner is a potluck. (I may have extra gear if you need to borrow something, please let me know). A detailed list of what to bring will be provided to registrants.
~Families of participants are welcome to come. If you are bringing your children please be sure that a partner, friend, or caregiver is there to be with them during class time. These folks are welcome to attend the camping, but not class, free of charge.
