With this event we hope to knit our communities together through ceremony, games, and partying. Our dream is to make much of the weekend community-driven, as friends and family collaborate to share knowledge and joy with each other. Think Jewish summer camp meets primal skills festival. Morning Yoga in the forest, campfire songs at night, you get the idea.
Please see the Get Involved section for how you can help us make this dream a reality!
This magical place is located on 200+ acres of amazing redwood forest and rushing rivers, just north of Boonville, CA, at 901 Masonite Industrial Rd. Navarro, Ca 95463.
We’d love as many people as possible to say onsite and there are a few different options for lodging/camping. For those who desire a few more creature comforts than what’s described on the accommodations tab, we’ve reserved a block of hotel rooms nearby. Please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We strongly encourage everyone to stay on-site; we want to feast, dance and enjoy
every minute we can together from midday Saturday until midday Monday.

Homeless Prenatal Program- HPP works with families and expecting parents in San Francisco to break the cycle of childhood poverty. They provide access to housing, prenatal and parenting support, and social services. Johanna worked at HPP for two years as a doula and childbirth educator, and has seen firsthand the incredible impact this organization has had on so many lives. You can make a contribution at https://hpp.secure.force.com/donate. If you choose to do this, we would appreciate your indicating "Designate my gift to: Johanna and Phil Wedding" on the donation page so we can properly thank you.
Free Our Neighbors Bond Fund- Free Our Neighbors is a bond fund co-founded by our dear friend, Alameda County public defender, and wedding guest Alisa Whitfield to raise money to free immigrants and asylum seekers from immigration detention. People often have to wait for months in detention while their immigration case is resolved. This administration is jailing more and more immigrants, which separates communities and makes it extremely hard for people to find lawyers and collect evidence. People who are able to leave immigration detention during their immigration case are much more likely to win their cases. Phil and Alisa have been friends since college, and Phil is now serving on the fundraising board for Free Our Neighbors.

All ages are enthusiastically invited! We are expecting a sizeable troupe of guests under 5, so if parents have ideas for how we can make this wedding fun and accessible for all of you, we are looking for suggestions.
We had big dreams of training a chicken to be our ring bearer, but sadly we were informed that pets are not allowed on premises. Service animals are permitted with prior written notice and must be on leash at all times.
Cell phone reception cuts out a few miles before you arrive at camp. We hope you will join us in unplugging for the weekend, but if you are in urgent need of an internet connection, there is wifi in the main lodge with the password available upon request.
