Lips Appreciation Day

March 16: Lips Appreciation Day

The following is a list of very important dates that must be observed at Rancho Delicioso, with celebrations, special food, costumes, and general fun:

As part of our never-ending effort to create a fun and unique culture here at the farm, we have decided that each volunteer should pick one holiday to lead the farm in celebration during their time here. Some of them are pretty hilarious.

So, if you are planning to volunteer here at Rancho Delicioso, choose one of the holidays on this list (or any other you can find) and be the leader in creating a celebration on the day here at the farm. It could be something simple, or something more extravagant, depending on your motivation and creativity.

The ones in bold were unanimously voted on by our current volunteers as being especially important to celebrate, but this is not a requirement. We are flexible here with our celebrations.
