(singing, bring hands to prayer, then open, then prayer, then hold hands in a circle)

 

"Hands together.  Hands apart.  Hands together, we're ready to start"

 

 

 

Earth who brings to us this food

 

Sun who makes it well & good

 

Thank you for this moment now

 

Thank you for this family.  Wow!!!!

 

(everyone claps & cheers)

 

Amen.

 

At least, that's how we say it.  I think the traditional version is a little different... (Spirit thinks it's great either way)

 

Thank you Hoes Down Volunteers!  Thank you Full BellyTerra FirmaRiver Dog & Good Humus Farmers!  Thank you Wintun families for celebrating with us on this land that is rightfully yours. Thank you most especially to the migrant farm families who lovingly midwife our nourishment & then share your music!  We are eternally grateful to be a part of this food community.  Another perfect weekend that will carry us through until next October.
