Saturday June 2 and October 13, 2018 (raindates Sunday June 3 and Oct. 14)
10:00 am - 4:00 pm
You are invited to Starflower Experiences’ Community Yard Sale at Manor Farm Park. We would like you to join us in this great way to get rid of items no longer needed while raising some extra cash. Not only would you be helping the
earth by reducing how much we throw away, but you would be helping us achieve our educational mission as well! For a $20 donation, you can participate in the yard sale with a 10’ by 10’ portion of the field to sell your own no-longer wanted household items.
Bring your own tables. Download a space reservation flyer here: Yard Sale Reservation form If you have sale items, but don’t want a space, you may donate them for our table (spring only).
If you can volunteer to help us run this event, please let us know. And don't forget to come and shop!

Our biggest need for volunteers each year is for our Harvest Festival. We need people to lead and watch children's activities, show others how to stencil leaves on cloth napkins, help with information, assist with set up and clean up and help with the Community Yard Sale.
We always need a couple people to help with our auction/coffeehouse and to be training assistants for the Rangers of the Earth or Earthkeepers programs. We'll also be scheduling some special days where we'll want people to help with making or repairing props and other days where we may do some trail work, clean up, or other work at Manor Farm/Berkeley Jackson County Park. Watch this space for special dates.
June 2, 2018: We could use help setting up and cleaning up at our Community Yard Sale. For setup, come as early as 7:30 am and for cleanup until about 5:30 pm. We also need people to help direct incoming traffic, sort, price and sell at our own booth.
October 2018: We'd love some spooky help for Manor Farm Haunted Trail nights. Call Rich at 631-885-3491.
March 24, 2018: We could use help setting up and cleaning up at our annual auction. Gloria Dei Church in Huntington Station. For setup, come at 5 pm.
Various Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm: Work days at Manor Farm: These are regular monthly work days (excepting January and February) to work on cleaning up and maintaining Manor Farm and the trails in the adjoining parks. Bring work gloves, clippers/loppers and lunch. Dress for the temperature!
This is outdoor work but we can eat lunch indoors. Canceled or rescheduled in case of bad weather. Call Rich to check on dates: 631-885-3491
