Help Get Turtle Soup To the Annual Rainbow Gathering in MN/WI

Greetings Family!

Please help us get Turtle Soup Kitchen to the Annual gathering in The North Woods by donating to our Go-Fund-Me fundraiser!

The kitchen trailer might be leaving for the gathering as early as June 1, so please donate early so we can get the funds to the kind family setting up the Turtle’s seed camp.

We need your help more than ever! This year we have to provide water pumping and filtration for our kitchen with solar power since there are no high altitude springs in the north country. It will take $500 of gasoline just to get the kitchen into the woods just to get started, and as always, we also need to purchase vegan food, filters, hoses, water tanks and other items needed to keep the gathering and our kitchen healthy.

Every little bit helps! Even $5! Thank you for donating today.

Here is video of some work done so far on early pump and filter system prototyping:

Please donate to our Go-Fund-Me fundraiser. Alternately,  you can also send money through Paypal to “GreatLakesRainbow@gmail.com”. Please share on social media if you can’t kick down other resources at this time. We Love You!

No Organized Activity In the Arb, Saturday July 19, 2014

Nichols ArboretumIgnore all rumors of cancellation, and all rumors of organization! As university policy expressly forbids any organized activities in the Nichols Arboretum, we here again sternly warn that there will not be any organized activity in this most magical arboretum in the late afternoon on the last day of the Ann Arbor Art Fairs.


If, though, you find yourself in Ann Arbor, MI on Saturday July 19 (last day of the Ann Arbor Art Fairs) and to escape the crowds, you decide to wander in the center of the Arb late in the afternoon, and you happen upon some happy hippies in heartsong, friendly family fostering free food, frisbees, frolicking, and fun…you can rest assured that it is no one’s fault. Saturday night AFTER Arboretum frolicking there will be a fire circle and overnight camping at Peace Farm north of Ann Arbor (after dark only please, dogs must be on leash at Peace Farm because of resident animals.) Click here for Arboretum parking and picnicking directions. Peace Farm directions: Take US-23 to exit 54. Go west (toward Hamburg) 1.5 miles on M-36. Peace Farm is on your right (north side of the road), marked by a prominent Peace Sign sign.
