What can you find at the Sebastopol Grange?
Opportunities for community-building and social action, music, food, fun and friendship! Everyone is welcome to attend, participate in activities, or become a member. (It’s not just for farmers!) Learn more about the Grange.
Our hall is closed during pandemic restrictions, but Grangers are still connecting, planning, and working to strengthen our community and our hall. Sign up for our newsletter to keep up on what we’re doing until we can meet together again!
Getting to know a Granger:
Shepherd Bliss, farmer, writer, educator
Descendant of a military family, Shepherd has been an ordained minister, a world traveler, a writer and editor, an advocate, and for the past thirty years a Sonoma County farmer. Read his story.
Our Produce Exchange has concluded for this season
Grangers celebrated our final Garden Exchange of the season. Thanks, Lawrence Jaffe, Carol Henderson, Dena Allen, Nancy Cadigan, and all who participated and worked to host it each week!
There will be no Craft Fair this year
Our annual Craft Fair has been canceled for this year, with a goal of hosting a Fair in Spring. After discussing our options, this seemed like the safest path forward.
Fellow Grangers and Friends of Sebastopol 306
Our Hall will continue to be closed to public events while we follow our County Health directives and develop protocols to insure safety. And we will continue to Zoom.
In January I asked many of you to write your Grange 2020 vision. While the pandemic has put so many of our activities on hold, we are planning for planting pollinator hedgerows in the back, working on doing the required maintenance, plus repair of our signs. We can keep up the planning for bigger projects in committees and as faithful stewards of our resources, will have to see what the rest of this year brings in rental income.
I again ask you all to envision how our Grange will choose to use our space and come together for each other and our community.
As Grangers our guiding word is perseverance.
And for a fun listen, our Grange Musician Paul Henry S. has been posting his original tunes on YouTube. Find them here.
