Spring Break Work Party

Why is this term different from all other terms? Because there's a two week class break right in the middle. From June 3 - 17 no classes will be held at DM. So what meaningful thing are we to do for that time? Get out of the classroom and into the dirt. From Diamond Mountain board member Nicole Davis:
Jobs include the Lama Dome, water system, helping build retreat and caretaker cabins, and making adobe bricks. Valuable work can be found for everyone.

Earle will be outside the kitchen yurt at 11am each morning to meet with anyone who doesn't have an assigned job for the day. Those who already have a designated project will meet with their crew leader at the agreed upon time.

We are planning community meals each evening for the work crews, including a time to dedicate and de-brief about the day. The BOT has pledged some money for meals, and we are asking for additional donations. Let me know if you would like to contribute.
See you on the land!
