Thank You To All Who Joined Us For The 2018 Spring Retreat!

It’s really hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that it has already been a week since the Retreat started!  I’m still not sure how the weekend went by so quickly.  It always seems to do that.

For those of you who were able to join us, THANK YOU for coming!  Karla and I appreciate you and we hope you had a great weekend.  I’m not sure if I’ll get a follow-up survey out to you this year or not, but if you have any feedback for us, you’re welcome to post it in the comments or email one or both of us directly.

Thank You!

And, for anyone who’s interested in joining us next year, here are the dates to put on your calendar:

Friday, March 15 – Sunday March 17, 2018

Once again we’ll be at the Ashley Inn in Cascade, Idaho.  Prices are not set yet, but should be similar to this year’s.

I’ll keep you posted!



2018 Spring Crop Retreat

We’re almost set for the 2018 Spring Crop Retreat at the Ashley Inn!

Spring Crop Retreat

If you haven’t registered already, we can add you to a waiting list.

I’ll have the prep list up VERY soon, but just in case you need the previous details, here they are:

The Ashley Inn, Cascade, Idaho

Friday, March 16th through Sunday, March 18th, 2018

$160 each for 5 in a room
$170 each for 4 in a room
$185 each for 3 in a room
$225 each for 2 in a room
$305 for 1 in a room

As Karla and I have mentioned in our previous emails/FB posts, a few things have changed at the Ashley Inn this year.  Please make note:
  • We need a confirmed head count by January 15th of at least 25 people.  Our deposit is non-refundable as of January 16th.
  • A $75 registration fee is due by January 31st.
  • The full balance of the Retreat fee is due by February 28th.  We have to pay for all registrations in full to the Ashley Inn on March 1st.  No changes can be made after that date.
  • The Ashley Inn is charging us an extra fee for medically necessary special dietary requests.  Please let us know ahead of time if you have a special dietary need so we can communicate that with the hotel.  It doesn’t appear that they will be able to make last-minute accommodations/changes this year.

Crop Retreat 2017

I know quite a few of you have been waiting for this news … the RETREAT IS COMING!  WOOHOO!

The new year is just about to start, and that means … it’s time to start talking about the Spring Cropping Retreat at the Ashley Inn in Cascade.

Our details are mostly the same, with a few changes this year, so be sure to read it all:

(Almost) Spring Cropping Retreat

March 17 – 19, 2017
Ashley Inn, Cascade, Idaho
Space is available on a first come, first served basis.
Your spot is reserved when we receive your deposit.  We are limited to a maximum of 40 croppers.

Cost is:

$145 per person sharing a room of 4
$160 per person sharing a room of 3
$200 per person sharing a room of 2

If you’d like to join us, a deposit of $75 is due by January 31st, 2017.  The remaining balance will be due by February 28th.  You can mail me a check, or if you would like to make your deposit by credit or debit card, you can do so here.  (Please do not make your reservations through the hotel: we take care of that for you.  Just let me know who you plan to share a room with, or if you need help finding a roommate.)


Antoinette is awesome and has a massage therapist who has agreed to come up and give 15 minute massages to anyone getting weary of sitting in those chairs on Saturday.  He said he would do $10 for a 15 minute sitting.

Here’s what I would like to ask of you: if you think you would be interested, can you please let me know when you register?  I’d like to give him an idea how many takers we have so we can make sure it’s worth his time.

One more thing:  I don’t want to spam the folks who aren’t interested in the retreat, so if you plan to join us, please click here to join my special Retreat email list.  I’ll only use it for retreat related emails between now and then.


We respect your email privacy

I hope you can join us for a fabulous weekend at the Ashley Inn!
