Work Weekends are scheduled to make sure everything is ready for Burning Flipside. We gather downed tree branches, clean up trails, and give the land some love before Pyropolis takes shape. There’s plenty of work for folks of all skills levels. If you want to learn to do something you’ve not done before, we’ll help you learn how.
This first WW is focusing on clearing downed trees and limbs. Later in the Spring, we start working on poison ivy removal and fire ant eradication.
You can camp all weekend, but overnights are not required. The focus is getting work done. While there are good times around the fire at night (burn ban and weather permitting), this is not a party. They are Leave No Trace weekends, and you must provide for yourself as if you were at a burn (bring your own food and water). NO DOGS, and no open nudity are permitted.
There is a smoker on site, and we will be cooking some meat. We could use someone to help with this – let us know if it’s you! Please bring a side or snack to share.
All work weekends start at 6pm on Friday, and everyone has to be off the land by 5pm on Sunday.
Work Weekend 1: Feb 15-17 (this weekend!)
Work Weekend 2: Mar 15-17
Work Weekend 3: Apr 12-14
Work Weekend 4: May 3-5
Let us know if you are coming! You may not be allowed on the property unless you have signed up on the spreadsheet before the work weekend. You must sign a waiver on site, too.
