Thank you to everyone who came to Slide Ranch on Saturday, April 26 to enjoy our annual Spring Fling. The sunny weather, the sound of the waves crashing, and the fresh ocean air provided the perfect backdrop for a memorable day at our coastal farm.
Almost 700 of you drove along Shoreline Highway, donned your walking boots, packed your picnics, and took part in our hands-on farm and craft activities - milking our goats, feeding the chickens, making flower crowns, face painting, baking bread, learning about beekeeping, and more. It was a super day!
This day couldn't have been a success without you, our 90 dedicated volunteers, and the many partners that helped offset the costs and bring the event to life. Thank you to Emmy's Pickles and Jams for hosting pickling workshops, and Marin Bee Company for hosting the bee workshops, and fiber expert, Christie Collins, who led the spinning and wool crafts in the yurt. The day wouldn't have been complete without music so thanks also to John Henry's Farm, Marin Academy's Bluegrass Band, Coon Biscuits and Sofi Rox for providing the bluegrass beat to our day.
Thanks also to our 90 amazing event volunteers and our very generous event and in-kind sponsors: Mighty Leaf, Arizmendi Bakery, Parkside Café, Bovine Bakery, Donna’s Tamales, Lagunitas Brewery, EO Products, Equator Coffee.
You helped raise over $17,000 to support Slide Ranch's environmental education programs that connect children with nature, inspiring them to look after the planet and their own health. This is amazing - thank you!
