This year the only Thursday workshop being offered onsite is chicken processing. Participants will learn directly from Gred Gross the process of giving death, plucking, and preparing the meat for Saturday's dinner. If you would like to join, please email Gred directly at gredgross_at_gmail.com
There is also another local Celo workshop on Thursday:

Joe Hollis has been developing Mountain Gardens as a 'Paradise Garden' since 1972.

Thursday is a day of set-up and preparation for the gathering. If you are driving a distance and need to arrive on Thursday to be able to participate on Friday, you can register from 6-9 pm and set up your camp. Please sign up on the registration if you plan to come early--there is a charge for Thursday night camping. We will have a potluck dinner Thursday night.
