October Fun!

yellowaltarAfter a brief quiet time at Deeply Rooted (well, the land has been quiet, DR folks have been busy participating in various Pagan events throughout the region), we’re heading into some of the busiest time of the year!  We’ve got some events coming up, as well as some new fundraising opportunities going on.

Coming up this weekend (Oct. 17-19), we’re having this month’s Work Party Weekend.  We’ll be doing lots of prep for our upcoming Samhain Celebration, held on Oct. 31 – Nov. 2nd, as well as prepping DR for the long winter months.  In between those fabulous events, we’re holding our annual Men’s Weekend (Oct. 24 – 26) , which always includes deep discussions, exploration of Men’s Mysteries, and in usual DR fashion, recreational gun shooting (sorry Ladies, this one is only for the Gentlemen). :)

dr-hoodie-smallAs you may also have noticed, we now have an Online Store on the DR website!  To celebrate (and to raise funds), we’re having a Deeply Rooted Hoodie Sale, where you can purchase warm, fuzzy fleece hoodies with the DR logo at a discounted price.  The sale ends on Oct. 24th, so be sure to get your items in soon!  Items purchased with this batch will be available for pickup at DR by Samhain (or you can opt for shipping for a fee).

Harvest time is upon us…

mabon-candlesBefore we know it, the crops will be cut and we’ll be reaping the benefits of a bountiful harvest!

We have a number of gatherings coming up this September, starting with a Women’s Weekend the second weekend, where women’s mysteries will be explored and experienced. Then we’ll be having another Work Party Weekend Sept. 12th – 14th, where we will prepare for the upcoming Mabon Celebration the following weekend.  Bring on Fall and the feasting! :)

A little news about our new Community Center building construction.  As you might remember, we had hoped to have the new community center built and usable by Fall 2014.  While this was our hope, unfortunately it will not be the case.  We are ready to start construction, but have work yet to do with the county to make sure all proper permits are in place and regulations are followed.  We have another meeting with the county next week that will determine whether we will be able to start construction this year or will wait until Spring.  We will keep you posted!

***UPDATE*** Due to a lack of interest, the Women’s Weekend on Sept. 5th-7th has been cancelled.  We will try this event at another time.

Thanks and Upcoming Events

A huge THANK YOU to everyone that contributed donations to our DR booth at PSG this year!  It was definitely a wet one this year, but it was worth it.  We made approx. $425 from sales at our booth :)  Every penny helps Deeply Rooted keep moving forward!

We’ve got a number of events coming up in July and August, the earliest being our July Work Party Weekend.  These are always lots of fun, with work thrown in for good measure ;)  These are the weekends where we take care of the necessities and projects around DR.  Kids are welcome! (we have no problem putting them to work :) )

Mid-Month we are having our first Kids Camp week, where kids 10+ years old can stay at DR for the week, learning about DR and doing many fun activities focused around natural community living.  Our Kids Camp this year is full, but be sure to keep it in mind for next year!

Our Lughnasadh/Lammas Celebration is coming up August 1st-3rd.  Come celebrate Lugh with games and fun for everyone!

Looking for Donation Items for PSG

Pagan Spirit GatheringPSG (Pagan Spirit Gathering) is just around the corner!  We’re seeking donation items that we can sell at our booth to benefit DR.  Got some knick knacks sitting around collecting dust?  Make jewelry and would have a few pieces to spare?  Or maybe some altar items that are ready to move on to a new home.  We’d love to sell them, every little bit helps!  If you’d like to help, send an email to Wade (deeplyrooted75@yahoo.com) detailing the items and we’ll contact you about pickup/transportation to DR.  Thank you muchly for supporting Deeply Rooted!

Beltane Celebration! Yay Spring!

dr-beltaneIt’s almost time for our annual Beltane Celebration at DR!  Yes, it’s been a bit wet out there this year, so let’s hope the Sun gods will shine on us with ample light and warmth!  It’s that time of year, when we celebrate the return of warmer days and the fertility of the Land and it’s many inhabitants.  Join us for an incredible weekend!
