Join The Irregardless Cafe for Dinner and Drumming in the Well Fed Garden, where we will gather to celebrate the oneness on Mother Earth through our natural environment, sharing a meal and group drumming.

This interactive drumming session will allow you to make music and connect with one another and to the world around you through the rhythmsof nature and join us in a process that yields stress reduction and lifestyle enhancement.

A tour of the Well Fed Community Garden will start at 5:30. A delicious community style meal will follow from Irregardless Cafe. The meal will include a garden salad, freshly baked pizza* and a cash bar. The evening will end with a group drumming circle facilitated by Greg Whitt of Drum for Change. Drums will be provided by Greg for the evening, but you are also welcome to bring your own.

Greg founded the still-thriving Raleigh Drum Circle community back in 2002 and facilitated their drum circles for many years right down the hill from us at Lake Johnson Park. His work is informed by indigenous wisdom traditions and enhanced with a graduate certificate in Transformative Leadership & Social Change from the Maryland University of Integrative Health. His company Drum For Change leads programs in corporations, congregations, communities and classrooms; programs designed to creatively connect people to one another and to the world around them in ways that are joyful, engaging, and good for you.
