Summer Solstice—the longest day and shortest night of the year. The revels of Spring have come and gone, leaving echoes of laughter on the wind. The seeds in our garden – both personal and collective – have put forth their searching, sturdy taproots. Amidst the buzzing pollinators, the plovers and treefrogs, these tender seedlings reach upwards, yawning towards the sky.

Faeries and fusion-kin, seeking respite from their daily toils, gather in the fading light of the evening. They survey the fields where their hopes and dreams are growing, watching the minute dance of greenery as the plants shudder and sing. Luscious life! Oh what a sight to behold!

Come join us and dance in the fullness of light! Whatever you’ve planted, whatever you’ve been tending, whatever your color or costume, whatever your weirdness or dreams may be – if they be grounded in love for all – come and dance with us on this special night!

This summer solstice is for celebration!
– Celebrate yourself and what you’re growing!
– Celebrate your garden and the ones lucky enough to share your sweet fruits!
– And most of all, celebrate ya’ booty with a little shake, shake, – shake…
