* Weather delays or cancellations will be announced via Twitter @StZombies

Berry Fun Bus trip - $22 - Friday June 23rd 12:30PM - 4:30PM

This year Amy would like to invite you to bus out to Firefly Berries farm owned by our very own berryfunmom. We will be taking a short walking tour of the farm and picking some seasonal berries. We will have a jam/jelly/juice tasting as well as coolers full of regional adult beverages! Firefly Berries just started to do natural dye yarn, so there will be a chance to see and buy this lovely yarn as well as some other Farmer's market type of goods! We are working on a pop-up shop from a regional LYS as well. This is a rain or shine event that is mostly outdoors. 
* Limited to 48 participants. 
* Deadline to sign-up is May 31, 2017 or until excursion is full.
* FULL as of April 12, 2017.

**The Berry Fun Bus Trip and Prediction 5K are excursions occurring during the retreat and are only available to registered retreat attendees. All excursion fees are non-refundable.
