April’s Family-friendly Event (is now in May due to the cool
F.U.N Event (Future Unfolds Now)
Camping with Kids—the human and the goat kinds!
When and Where
Date: May 13th, 14th, and 15th, 2022
Time: There are many time slots. Please sign up HERE
Location: Peace Lutheran Church (20 Northdale Blvd. Coon Rapids, MN 55448).
Event Description: Goats are amazing because they eat the most undesirable and noxious weeds imaginable! As a result, we are working with Peace Lutheran Church in Coon Rapids to rid their Peace Community Garden of annoying and illegal weeds such as the painfully abundant sand burs and potentially toxic leafy spurge. Instead of spraying chemicals that may or may not even work to combat these horrible weeds, we are bringing in the goats to munch these weeds down.
Sign up for a shift HERE. If all of the shifts are full, feel free to come anyhow! The shifts are kind of the minimum number of people desired. The more the merrier!
What to bring. Bring whatever you need to keep yourself comfortable during your shift, a book, a chair, a friend, a snack…You can even just sit in your car in the parking lot. If you are camping, bring your own tent, sleeping bag, etc.
When you arrive for your shift, call or text the coordinator.
Social distancing. Whenever possible, social distancing will be observed by asking participants to spread out during the program and structuring activities in a way that does not encourage close proximity.
