September’s gathering was once again smaller, lending to a more intimate atmosphere. A total of 6 came by to share in community.
October Outdoor COVID-Safe Gathering
Please join us this Wednesday, October 20th at our home at 34 Blue Ridge Avenue, Asheville from 6pm to 9pm, as always informal drop-in style. Unfortunately, we are still in the midst of a pandemic. Please refer to the CDC and the NCDHHS for the latest information and data.
In the spirit of an abundance of caution, and caring for our community members, while addressing our human need for connection, we will hold the gathering outside.
**As with the last few months, this gathering will be modified to minimize potential droplet exposure.**
1. We will continue to gather outside.
2. Instead of sharing dishes as with a traditional potluck, we ask that if you plan to have supper, to pack a personal picnic for your own pod or pod groups.
3. We ask that individuals wear a mask when moving about in case distancing is not possible, until you can be stationary in seating/gathering areas.
We will provide an assortment of single serving beverages.
If you’d like to call or video call in during this time, Gabriel will also make himself available for a chat at our Holding Space number (828) 414-8086. Please leave pets at home (service animals excepted). Please RSVP by following this link if you plan to attend.
Masks will be available, along with plenty of space outdoors, and outdoor hand-washing station.
We welcome neighbors, friends, colleagues, and other people interested in or involved with concepts of sharing housing, end of life work, and how they could fit together.
The grounds include a paved driveway, and while navigable by wheelchair, the yard pathways are grass with some uneven areas. There is a wooden ramp into the house for bathroom access. Continue to wear a mask if needing to use the bathroom inside.
(While there are a few parking spaces right next to the house, please reserve this for people needing to park close. Please do not park on the grass – there are fig trees planted there.
There is a Baptist Church on the corner of the next street over, Mitchell Ave, and Haywood Road, that has a large parking lot 0.2mi from the house. There is also street sparking on Haywood Road. All activity of the potluck will take place outdoors.)
