Alcove WorkEnd Gatherings   We gather together – usually once a month – to enjoy the company of our family and friends while working on our gathering spaces and camping areas. These are laid back weekends. There may or may not be projects or workshops scheduled. Saturdays are spent working on Alcove projects. Bring your gloves and any tools you many have to use and share. Sundays we relax finish up projects, clean up, put things away and always more hugs – before heading back out into the world out there. Check our Facebook pages for more information.

Majority of the time we are on property Getting Things Done.  If you have some Free Time and would like to join us – Let Us Know – we’ll let you know what plans are for the time period you are looking at coming by to visit/help.

Messtafus is an Alcove Family created tradition – Celebrating Endings & Beginnings & experiences in between… Milestones in our lives.  It’s our chanced to pay homage to all the rotten crappy stuff we had to endure and survive to get to the place we are now.

We are thankful for the time we have been given *together and apart* to learn the lessons needed to receive the blessings of   Living in Perfect Trust and Perfect Love for Eternity. We are all definitely a work in progress. Every little thing is going to be all right.
