The Fosterville Intentional Community and Storyteller Brian Rohr present:
In Celebration of the Harvest Moon: a Night of Sacred Story
Featuring Storyteller Brian Rohr
Saturday, September 26 – 7-9pm
Forsterville – 4629 SE 64th Ave, Portland, OR
The moon is full and the harvest is ready! Please join Fosterville and Storyteller Brian Rohr in honoring and celebrating our beautiful Grandmother Moon in all of her autumn glory as the Harvest Moon. This is a time of year when cultures from around the world gather together to delight and revel in deep tradition while being fed by deep, rich story.
Everyone is welcome. It will be a sliding scale donation of $12-$20 though no one will be turned away. If you cannot bring money, please bring something else to offer – fresh vegetables from your garden, homemade jam, beautiful weavings, fermented veggies, honey from your bees, a unique original poem handwritten on special parchment, eggs from your chickens… you get the idea! Something unique, local and special. If you can’t bring that, then just bring yourself.
