Due to lack of volunteers as well as my off-farm employment, we are not planning any events other than the normal sheep shearing day.
We are very excited that Douglas County has passed new Agritourism regulations that will expand the types of events we can offer at the farm in 2013! We will try to announce all events on FaceBook (find us at “Pinwheel Farm”) as well as this website.
We are starting to plan a calendar of hands-on workshops on farming and sustainable living. Please let us know what topics you’d like, and we’ll check out possible presenters. We try to make our workshops very affordable, usually by donation.
We can now host small non-farm-related events such as writing workshops, off-grid weddings, spiritual retreats, etc. All activities and events must be consistent with the Pinwheel Farm General Policies, Environmental Policies, and Event Guidelines. Please contact us if interested.
General event parking: Please help minimize our carbon footprint as well as traffic congestion! Parking is limited, and wet weather may reduce the available parking. Please follow on-farm traffic signs the day of the event. If possible, arrive at the farm via bicycle, bus (2 blocks away at 5th and Lyon) or on foot. If you must drive, please carpool. DO NOT park anywhere on North Street! (Directions to the farm)
Kansas Agritourism Liability Waiver: The following applies to all events and agritourism activities at Pinwheel Farm: “Under Kansas Law, there is no liability for an injury or death of a participant in a registered agritourism activity conducted at this registered agritourism location if such injury or death results from the inherent risks of such agritourism activity.
