Heart Working Volunteer Day


February 22, 2020

Join us for a day of volunteer work and activity like raffle items, food, and a special appearance from Austin Kirtan.

Please come out to help us build out the old pig farm and loading dock into new chicken coops and foraging areas for our 40 ground birds. We are in the beginning stages so there will be a lot of digging, moving dirt, cutting back trees, removing debris and more. We’ll also be working on our Veganic Farm. This is truly HeartWorking as we evolve a place that was once an area of terror and death and revitalize it into a beautiful habitat for living beings!

Special Appearance: Austin Kirtan

Austin Kirtan is a spiritually inspired band that provides a modern take on an ancient practice. Mixing traditional harmonium chants with lively, upbeat tracks, the group takes listeners on a musical journey that moves the heart and soul. From mellow, acoustic chants to high-energy “rock out kirtan parties,” the music is as diverse as the audience it draws. The band enjoys sharing the joy and happiness that come from the kirtan practice with their growing community.
