The work of our Conservation Associate Robert Woodruff has touched the lives of so many farmers and friends. Woody has always had a deep understanding and appreciation for how all things work together in nature and in our communities. For years his farm has served as a living example of what a regenerative farm should be– with acres of restored natural prairie and permaculture. He has been a resource and inspiration for so many. Now it’s our turn to show Woody some love.
Join us for a potluck at the scenic Jim Edgar State Park to honor Woody and his work. If you’d like, stay for his favorite pastime- camping. RSVP below!
Campfire Potluck and Camp Out with Woody
Jim Edgar Panther Creek Park
May 4th, 5:00pm
Directions: Located in Cass County 25 miles northwest of Springfield off State Illinois Route 125, 10 miles northeast of Virginia, 10 miles west of Petersburg and New Salem State Historic Site, and 10 miles northwest of Ashland.
Hiking trails are available if you’d like to come early and hike around.
This is potluck style! Bring a dish to pass, a lawn chair, and your camping gear if you plan to stay the night.
We’ve rented a group camp site and we’ll bring the main dish– pulled pork from Oak Tree Farm. It’s free to tent camp at the group site, but if you have a camper, you’ll have to reserve a space separately. You can reserve your camper space here.
Can’t make it but wish to donate to the family? All proceeds to benefit the Woodruff family and Woody’s fight against cancer.
NOTE: Contributions to Woody and his family are not tax deductible.
