We take a lunch for 30 minutes between sessions.  You can definitely sign up for both sessions and work the whole day with us – we like that.

Please bring a water bottle, sunscreen, and a lunch if you plan to eat between working sessions.  Wear a hat, gloves, sturdy shoes and long pants.  There is poison oak on the property; while it is limited to certain areas (and we’re working to remove it entirely) it is best to be covered for protection and know how to identify it.
