Winter Solstice at the Farm
Join EPIC Outreach at One EPIC Farm to celebrate the transition of Winter with a Winter Solstice Celebration. The farm sanctuary is home to about 25 rescued farm animals from horses, donkeys, pigs, chickens, a farm dog, bunny, and some cats.
For 2 hours you will enjoy yummy, warm, holiday inspired foods, kid art activities, a tour of the farm to meet and greet with the rescued farm animals, and relax with an introduction to Reiki - which is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.
Food will be provided by Garden Truck Food Co. and Reiki will be provided by Jade Paws.
Winter Solstice is celebrated on December 21, 2020. What is Winter Solstice? Fire and light are traditional symbols of celebrations held on the darkest day of the year. The winter solstice is the day of the year with the fewest hours of daylight, and it marks the start of astronomical winter. After the winter solstice, days start becoming longer and nights shorter as spring approaches.
The number of guests is limited to 50 to keep everyone safe during the event. Parking is limited so if you have a large group, please carpool together.
