The time has come for the first Pickathon / Pendarvis Farm Work Party of 2012!

This Saturday, Feb. 11th we will be out in the woods doing some trail maintenance from the Woods Stage up the Broken Shovel Trail and working on making some nice level camp spots along the way.

Shake off them indoor blues and come get some fresh country air!

If you bring children, please be aware that the evening party becomes 21+.

Firewood donations to heat the barn are always warmly welcomed!

you know where we are.

-10am-1pm: We’ll head on up to the woods, tools in hand (and wheel barrows)

-1pm-2pm: LUNCH BREAK!!! al Forno Ferruzza Pizzeria will be bringing out their mobile pizza unit to provide us with authentic Sicilian cuisine for lunch! If you have specific dietary needs, you may want to brown bag it.

BYOB please!

Now, What to bring???

-Appropriate clothing- Boots, WORK GLOVES, rain gear, warm socks, etc.

-Tools- Bring ’em if you got ’em. Bow saws, loppers, axes, shovels, hard rakes, scythes, sickles, machetes, hoes. For liability reasons, please do not bring chainsaws. We may have a few approved folks getting some big stuff out with chainsaws, but most of the work is done by hand.

-Canteen/Water bottle

-Change of clothes- Unless you like to party in your work clothes…

-Musical instruments- Guitars, banjos, sousaphones, musical saws, etc. We will set up an open mic/and/or/jam on the stage in the barn, and there are plenty of nooks for smaller jams.

-Sleeping bag/Tent- If you plan on “partying”. Please do not drink and drive!

-Food/Drink to share (if you wish)

-Your positive attitude, and witty charm

-A friend (or two)

*Since Pickathon volunteer slots are limited, volunteering at a work party will not earn you a weekend pass for the festival.


Folks who volunteer at work parties WILL be given priority for a volunteer position at Pickathon, which WILL get you your weekend pass. Volunteer positions include set-up/tear-down, brew crew, recycling, or other various positions. Pickathon work parties are a great way to make new friends, let off some steam from the work week, become part of the Pickathon/Pendarvis Farm community, help out, and get back to nature. We truly appreciate every drop of sweat that goes into making this festival happen.

Please RSVP for the work party or RSVP to the event on our Facebook page. If you plan on bringing some friends out, please include the number of people and their names (or have them contact us directly), so we can get a head count for party accommodations!

Thank you SO much, and look forward to seeing you!
