Flick n’ Float – July 28th from 8 to 10 PM at The Lodge Pool.  Join us for a summer Flick n’ Float!  We will be featuring  Moana.  Come early to swim and stay through the movie!  This event is FREE, but please  RSVP here!

Kids Summer Concert Series feat. Rocknoceros – August 5th from 6:30 to 8 PM at the Tenant House Amphitheater. As every family with youngsters in the Washington, DC area knows, Rocknoceros  is three guys: Coach, Williebob, and Boogie Bennie. They have been making award-winning music together since 2005 and are celebrating their 10th year together with a brand new album.

Coach and Boogie, best friends since they were five years old, endlessly listened to Beatles records in Boogie's suburban bedroom while "waiting for Williebob," who appeared on the scene in high school. The three have been making music ever since, although it wasn't until 2005, when Coach was raising young'uns of his own, that the inspiration for Rocknoceros finally crystallized.

In its first decade as a band Rocknoceros has entertained tens of thousands of fans throughout the country and gained significant national recognition with performances at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Wolf Trap, and The Kennedy Center.

Bring a blanket, chairs, snacks and settle in for a fun family night

Conservancy & Farm

Nature Walk with Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy – Sunday, August 6 from 8 to 11 AM in The Greens.  Join us for a meadow nature walk with Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy.  We will be looking for butterflies – and seeing what else pops its head up in these meadows full of native grasses and wildflowers.  If you own binoculars, please bring them. Free.  Registration required: Register here. 

Directions:  Meet at the powerline easement on Peach Orchard Lane (near 25355 Peach Orchard Lane – if using GPS).  Directions:  from Braddock Road, turn West onto Rt. 600/Lenah Road and immediately turn Left onto Peach Orchard Lane. Follow Peach Orchard to the power line easement; park on the left.   

Willowsford Farm Volunteer Hours – Sunday, August 6th from 3 to 5 PM at Willowsford Farm in The Grange (23595 Founders Drive, Ashburn). Top jobs around the veggie farm in August may include: tomato harvesting, weeding and then more weeding. This is a volunteer session for heat and insect tolerant young adults and adults. Tomatoes are a high-value crop for us, so the harvest will begin with detailed instructions and require grit and the physical strength to carry 50 lbs. at a time. And weeding in the dog days of summer is no easy task so if you are looking for a challenge, come on by! Wear sunblock, put a hat on, and bring lots of water. RSVP here

Willowsford Farm Tour  Sunday, August 6th from 5 to 6 PM at Willowsford Farm in The Grange (23595 Founders Drive, Ashburn). August can be hot and buggy, so join us this month for a twilight, evening tour of the Grange Farm. You’ll see melons, squash and our later successions of peppers and tomatoes in the fields. We’ll talk about what’s happening in the crop calendar in late summer, what’s being or soon-to-be seeded, harvested, preserved or stored. This is a great tour for veggie-loving neighbors, beginner farmers, scout groups, and local food aficionados. *Note: The tour begins in the Farm Garden. Please park in the lot on Founders Drive, across the street from the Farm Stand. RSVP here.
