Description

Location: Afton State Park– about a half hour from the Twin Cities

Date: Sun-Monday Sept 15-16: We will arrange flowers on Monday morning.

Hostel-style/single room accommodations: Rustic camping, everyone piles in bunks in the same room, like a sleepover. There are three bunks with six beds total; so I am taking a max of five registrants. You will need to bring your own bedding and toiletries. It may be “co-ed” – people of all gender identities are welcome. There is no electricity; there are vault toilets nearby the yurt. If you need more privacy or amenities/aren’t used to camping, this event may not be a great fit for youSee yurt info on the MN State Parks page.

Potluck dinner: Guests are asked to bring something small to share-– it doesn’t have to be fancy, and remember, there will only be six of us.

Provided breakfast: I will provide a spread of fresh fruits, nuts, pastries, and we can make coffee/tea over the fire outside.

Parking: the lot is located a short distance away; all vehicles need state park permits- you can purchase them for $7 if you don’t already have a 2019 one. Hopefully people register with buddies and carpool, as parking is limited. If you do want to have a buddy come, I’d suggest registering at the same time since space is also very limited.

Accessibility: This yurt is wheelchair accessible. There is a lower level futon bed that folds to a double that I will reserve for anyone who special requests it.
Workshops: I will bring an abundance of materials for you to create a unique design! Before we begin, I’ll demonstrate and provide basic information on the flowers/plants we are working with and on techniques.
