On Saturday morning, July 20, the North Carolina Green Party (NCGP) will begin its statewide Summer Gathering at the beautiful Seedbed venue in Mebane, just outside Durham and Chapel Hill. The Seedbed is the same location where we held our 2019 Winter Gathering and is the former location of the Stone House retreat center. Breakfast starts at 9:00 a.m., provided by the NCGP. The meeting is scheduled from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., with lunch provided by the NCGP, as well as an onsite potluck dinner. On Sunday, we’ll hold a meeting reserved for NCGP members only.

DIRECTIONS TO THE SEEDBED IN MEBANE

Here is a map of the location. Look for Green Party signs directing your way as you approach Nicks Rd. Though the address is technically Nicks Rd, the Seedbed venue is down a small dirt road off Nicks. A simple green gate and a Green Party sign will mark the entrance to the dirt road. Turn onto this private road ("Hurston Rd.") and proceed till the end till you see the parked cars. The Seedbed is on the left. 

If coming from Hwy 85 South: the most straightforward exit to get off is exit 153, Mebane Oaks Road / Tanger Outlets exit. It's a left onto Mebane Oaks Rd from the exit, and then ultimately a left onto Nicks Rd.

Don't forget to RSVP below. We need this info to plan for food.

To sign up to bring a food or beverage item to the potluck, contact NCGP coordinator Jan Martell at marteldorado@gmail.com.

Thanks, and see you in Mebane!
