Friends, this event has been cancelled due to thunderstorms forecasted for this weekend. There is an 80% chance of thunderstorms Sat and Sun, and more flooding expected between now and then. We have learned to take these storm forecasts seriously.
It is bad luck to cancel a flooded garden party due to more flooding! But, we’d rather be safe with everyone, then get caught in a storm on the lake. For those wonderful people who already signed up, we will gladly reimburse you–I will contact you today to work out a refund.
Look for a rescheduled event later this summer. Stay dry, friends, we hope to see you soon! Justin and Kayla
Event Cancelled: The recent flood destroyed more than half of our produce for the summer. But with the help of our wonderful friends, we are turning this near-disaster into a celebration! Join us for live music, a kayak tour, Groovie Smoothies, a native plant sale, tasty food, and much more!
Advance registration and payment required so we can have everything ready for you, please see details below.
Kayak Tour of Lake and Flooded Gardens
Ryan Ford of Rockport Kayak will lead a private kayak tour of our lake and gardens. Ryan is a professional kayak tour guide and an expert in ecotourism. You don’t need a kayak, life-vest, or anything—Ryan will have everything you need. Just wear appropriate clothing for this adventure!
Since the recent flood, we have seen herons and egrets catching fish out of our gardens. This is bad for produce, but beautiful to watch. Enjoy this unique, up-close experience of the flora and fauna of our farm from a kayak view.
Live Music by Ty Dietz with Guest Appearance by Reverend Fred!
We are thrilled to host singer/songwriter Ty Dietz at this event! I can’t tell you how excited Kayla and I are to have Ty performing at our farm. Don’t miss this incredible entertainer, he is the best at what he does.
As an added bonus, our friend Reverend Fred will pick a few songs also! Only a great flood could bring such great musicians together on our farm.
Groovie Smoothie on Site!
Danya Heck will bring Groovie Smoothie to the event. You can purchase the delicious and healthy Groovie Smoothies of your choice from Danya with cash or credit card.
Native Dave Plant Sale!
Native Dave will bring a wide selection of native plants to sell. Dave’s property has so much flooding, he has little room even to store his wonderful plants. Now is great time for you to stock up on beautiful native plants while supporting a great local business.
Wonderful Food Available!
We will have some tasty treats available for you to fuel your kayak adventure. We will let you know the details soon–it will definitely be something delicious!
Register and Pay in Advance
The cost for this event is $50 per person, which includes your private kayak tour, bottled water, and some tasty treats in a beautiful setting. The event is Sunday, June 5, from 3:00pm to 7:00pm. Come for any or all of that time. This event has been cancelled due to weather. I will send you details and directions upon registration.
Kayla and I are so thankful to have such wonderful friends, who are helping us turn the flood into something positive. We only need your presence to make it a party!
If we can’t get produce out of these gardens, let’s kayak over them! Join us for a great time!
