Rainbow Family Gathering of The Tribes
When on-Site... PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD.... BUILD UP, NOT DIG DOWN... meaning build HEARTHS.... i.e. on ground spread rocks, and dirt, then build FIRE UP... i.e. so when clean-up remove ashes... dirt, rocks... water the roots of the grass underneath... Meadows are delicate....
6/21/2011 BE PREPARED FOR ROUGH CONDITIONS FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS AND BE SELF SUFFICIENT AS THIS IS STILL SEED CAMP. DO NOT SHOPLIFT. BE SHANTI SENA WHEN IN TOWN.
Folks are planning on moving on site today. Please use the buddy systems when walking around the gathering as folks have been getting stuck in snow drifts and have had to be rescued.
