Prairie Dinner 2011

The Milky Way
is making a dazzling swathe
across the sky
these days.
And so it is time
for the Prairie Dinner and Concert.
Last year,
this wondrous evening ended
around the bonfire,
Kyle Dillingham playing “Ashokan’s Farewell”
on his violin
as we all stood in amazement
at the beauty of the Milky Way overhead.
It could happen again.
The stars are lining up:
Kyle is on tap
(and again, he’ll play a tune or two
on our dad’s old fiddle.)
We’re always glad to share an evening with Kyle
and are always in awe of the beautiful music
he creates.
Kamala Gamble, of Kam’s Kookery,
is gathering local foods for a scrumptious dinner
set alongside Doe Creek.
It’s a magical combination:
colorful, fresh, deliciously-prepared food
coupled with Oklahoma’s best wine
from Woods and Waters Winery
at a gathering of people who care about Earth
eating al fresco
as Earth rolls up and the sun paints the sky.
On Saturday, October 1.
Guests may arrive at 3 to tour the farm,
walk the labyrinth,
see the strawbale hermitage,
visit the animals.
At 5, we’ll start with appetizers,
then dinner.
At dusk, we’ll walk to the round-top
for the concert,
some hot cider,
the fire
and the stars.

Green Connections,
the non-profit that supports
educational programming
at Turtle Rock Farm,
benefits from the proceeds.
