Weed Dating

 

Meet nice people while pulling up weeds on a beautiful farm!

 

We are planting the seeds of love in the rows of a local flower farm by hosting our agricultural spin on speed dating. On July 12, daters will come out to Delight Flower Farm in Champaign, for a fun evening of pulling weeds while meeting new people (who aren't afraid to get their hands a little dirty!).

How It Works: Everyone will meet at the farm for some brief introductions. Then, after a short farm tour and instructions from farmers Maggie and Holly, the group will be split into pairs to work together to tackle the weeds growing in a row and get to know each other. After 5-10 minutes, everyone will switch partners and spend some time chatting and weeding with a new person. At the end of the evening, we will all meet back at the barn for some Prairie Fruits Farm goat's milk gelato to cool off after meeting and weeding.

BYOB is encouraged. Beer & Wine will be available for sale from Prairie Fruits Farm. There is also the option to add on a Wine Tasting featuring a few wines from Prairie Fruits Farm's portfolio of organic and biodynamic wines. They’ll feature a lovely white and a rose from Sardinia as well as a few lighter reds. Wine Tasting is $8.

All ages and orientations are welcome!

Where: Delight Flower Farm, 4410 N Lincoln Ave., Champaign, IL (incubator farmers at Prairie Fruits Farm & Creamery)

When: July 12, 6-8pm

How Much: $10 per person includes light refreshments, BYOB encouraged.

How to Prepare: Be ready for an evening outdoors. Remember your sunscreen, bug spray, and sturdy shoes. We'll be socializing in a working field, so dress in clothes that can stand a little dirt!
