In September 2012 we celebrated the opening of the new Autumn installations at fieldwork  and our 5th anniversary with a fun, well-attended opening followed by a Hootenanny/barnparty fundraiser across the road in Susie's barn.  The fruits of our labours (artists, collective, and friends and supporters) were much, much appreciated - the shelter was up, the outhouse operational, the sheep fence around the parking area beautiful and functional, the installations all wonderful, and the bands were totally FUN!  The kids kicked off the dancing and we all joined the galavanting until the wee hours.  Thanks to everyone who volunteered, to everyone who came out, and to the bands The Good Right Arm Stringband and The King of the Swingers that made it such a fun night.  We hope to do host another fun event in September 2013.
