Dear Friends, 

Once each year, we prepare a special evening with a fabulous farm-raised meal to celebrate and raise funds to support the work of the Eco-Institute at Pickards Mountain.

Many of you remember how magical the evening was last year, how inspiring the gathering of souls, and how wonderful the food, spirits, and auction prizes. It promises to be even better this year!

We ask our friends and supporters to dig deep and "purchase a ticket" at the level that feels right to each of you. Consider purchasing a table of 8 tickets, invite friends, and support the Earth Sanctuary and learning community that is the Eco-Institute! 

Please mark your calendars and save the evening of Wednesday, October 11th for this memorable event. 


Friend - $60
Community - $80
Loving Supporter - $100
Generous Supporter - $500
Enthusiastic Supporter - $1,000

Can't make it to the dinner, but want to give a donation in support of the Eco-Institute?
