We will be camping in the olive orchards at Soul Food Farm. There is a lovely bathroom with hot water and an outdoor shower so you can shower under the stars. We will provide tents, but let us know if you prefer to use your own. We will be outside for most of the workshop so make sure to dress accordingly. And if you need help getting your hands on anything on the below list, let us know.


  • A meaningful object--can be as big or small as you'd like provided it fits in your car
  • Notebook and pen/pencils AND/OR your laptop to write on. Note: there will not be an opportunity to charge your devices, so come fully charged and if your battery dies, be ready to write on actual paper.

  • Headlamp
  • Comfortable shoes to walk in outdoors over rough terrain
