Our 5th annual Apple Wassail will be this Saturday January 26th, 4-8 pm.  Join us as we reinvent the ancient tradition of wassailing the apple trees, blessing them and thanking them with song, libations,  toasts, and bonfires.  This year we are adding a blessing of the pregnant ewes, since lambing could start any day (might even be a lamb or 2 by the weekend!). 
4 pm: learn apple wassail songs and a sheep blessing song.  
4:30: sing to the sheep in the barn, then process to the orchard for the wassail.
5:30: potluck.   
Apple princesses, beasts, and Greenmen of all genders are welcomed!  Wear living green, bring drums, bells, clangers, noisemakers.
