Full Moon Women’s Circle

From Grace Willen ’10 & Chloe Bolton ’10

We’ve noticed that women can sometimes be competitive and hierarchical with each other– competitive about appearance, sexual partners, social power, etc.  We want to create a space that ACTIVELY OPPOSES that.  We’re hoping to meet twice a month on the full moon and the new moon and talk about these issues and the role that women play as healers and visionaries.  We would like to create a space where women can come together as sisters to empower ourselves and each other and honor our connection to nature and the lunar cycle.
If this sounds off-putting or cheesy to you, maybe think about why this may be and what stigmas there are in our culture about sisterhood and womens empowerment.  We’ve been thinking about this ourselves and these are some issues we’d like to discuss together.
Our first meeting will be this Tuesday, which is a blue moon. Question? email us at cosmicwes[at]gmail[dot]com.
Date: Tuesday March 3oth
Time: 10 PM
Place: 12 A Knowles Ave

Long Lane Farm says “Wasuuup!” and “Where you at SHOVELS??”

From Long Lane Farm:

Dearly beloved and good friends,

Long Lane Farm is hoppin’ to git at springtime. We want to grow food! You dig? We want to dig, but unfortunately we looked in the shed and only found two shovels. Thus, if you see any shovels around town, please ask them kindly to make their way back home, to the gray shed over at Long Lane Farm.

What’s that? You would like to come too? Tremendous! We’re having our first work day on Saturday (March 27th).

What’s that? You can fix our lawnmower? Wonderful! You have a pickup truck? Sick! We’d love to meet you. Holla at us at longlanefarm@gmail.com, or come to our farm meetings Mondays at 8 at 190 High Street.

You got to the end. Thank you for reading.

Love,

Long Lane Farm
