In 2017, White Rose Farm is hosting five events to honor the seasons sponsored by White Rose Farm Circle. Inc.
May Day Celebration: Sunday, May 7, 2017
We enact an old-time Spring tradition in the country--weaving satin ribbons around the May Pole accompanied by the music of Artie and the Vipers. Beech Tree Puppets will again present a short puppet show, Butterfly Wonder.
Barn Dance! Saturday, June 17, 2017, 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.
We will swing into summer at an old-time barn dance in the chestnut barn at the farm. Caller Kim Forry will call simple dances suitable for everyone accompanied by local live musicians. As people leave the barn, they see fireflies rise from the fields as dusk settled on the land.
"The fireflies were spectacular. As we left the moon was rising and the last glimmer of sun was going down in the west. Thank you for the reminder of beauty in the simplicity of nature." Rebecca
Salsa Party! Saturday, August 5, 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Michael Campbell will again teach salsa dancing on the concrete pad behind the barn. we will serve light fare, including fresh salsa from tomatoes, onions and peppers fresh-picked from the farm
"The Salsa Party created such an enchanting atmosphere that even my hubby danced—that’s magic!" Holly
Celebrate the Fall Equinox, Saturday, September 23, 5:00 p.m.
This year, Beechtree Puppets presented The Crystal Ball in the barn at the farm. Then we enjoy the magic of this evening--the weaving of a performance in the barn, the gardens in fall, a fire circle and sharing. People bring food to share and the evening ends with people gathering around the fire singing and telling stories.
Thank you for opening your farm to us. We had a great time! Always enjoyable to see the Beech Tree Puppets! We especially enjoy warm company of you and your guests! Michelle
Drum Circle: Saturday, November 4, 2017, 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Jacqui McMillan will again lead a drum circle to honor the ancestors. We will begin with a community altar, remembering loved ones--people and pets. We sing; we drum; we lift prayers skyward.
Thanks for a lovely evening. I enjoyed it very much. And I so needed it today as I really felt the need to be “cleansed”. The stars and the moon were so beautiful and all in all the time there was very grounding. Jacquie
