The Wild + Free community is a pioneering one. We're used to rolling up our sleeves, working together, and getting things done! In this spirit, we're organizing a men-only work weekends at the Farm Village on October 4-6 to complete some important projects in time for our fall retreats.
Last month, we hosted a work weekend for families. But for these events, we're looking for a smaller, more focused team of men. It will be an incredible time of friendship, fun, and accomplishment.
See the FAQs below, or email us for more information.
At our men's work weekend in October, we'll be making general repairs in the bunk rooms and bathrooms in the main lodge.
Sorry mamas and kids, this is men only. But take heart, we'll have opportunities for whole families to serve together in the future.
Sons 12 and older are welcome to join their fathers.
We hope you can join us!
Are meals provided?
Yes, we'll provide meals starting with dinner on Thursday night and ending with breakfast on Sunday morning.
What lodging is available?
All of our lodging will be in shared bunk rooms, and we ask that you bring your own bedding, towels, and toiletries. We'll send you a list of needed items and directions after you sign-up.
Can I bring my family and kids?
Not at these weekends. We hosted a work weekend for whole families last August (and it was a blast). But for these weekends, we're looking for smaller, more focused teams of adults to complete important projects.
What if my older kids want to help?
We do allow kids older than 12 of the same sex to accompany their fathers or mothers at the respective work weekends.
How do I get to the Farm Village?
We'll provide detailed directions after you sign-up. Here is a good address for mapping directions: 162 Sparrow Ln, Head Waters, VA 24442
We require all participants to sign a liability waiver and provide health insurance information. Here is the liability waiver.
What if I have other questions?
