Picnic to music, learn about collaborative art making

All are welcome to learn about butterfly gardens, hydroponics and gardening. Visitors can see live raku firings and participate in community collaborative art making. People are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch and relax to the sound of local musicians in the scenic, historic setting.
