HOMEMADE & HOMEGROWN
SWAP NIGHT at Cold Spring Farm
December 12th from 6:00-8:00 pm
Limited Space! There's something deeply satisfying about mutual give and take, barter and trade. It's an exchange of our time, energy and attention for that of someone else's and it's simply GOOD. To participate, simply bring along 12 items you have made by hand or grown (could be baked or canned goods, knitted or sewn items, salves or lotions... the list of possibilities is endless). Bring 12 and leave with 12 unique items through this fun community gathering that is quickly becoming a tradition here on our farm... Bring a dish to share and come with friends for a lovely evening of soul nurturing and local connections in our Harvest Barn. Sign up ASAP through our TICKET SITE (listed above), though there is NO CHARGE.

It seems so simple to buy your holiday decorations and throw them up in a hurry for that instant flash of holiday color each year, but have you ever thought of trying your hand at MAKING YOUR OWN? It is simple and it is definitely fun! So, join us for some merriment this holiday season and CREATE YOUR OWN HOLIDAYS! Everything shines brighter and means more when you’ve put yourself in charge of making what you love to share with others!
All you have to do is sign up and we do the rest! All materials are provided for each class. If you have special decorations you’d like to use, bring them along and Jess will help you add them into your creation.
