You heard it here first: More than two months ago, Napa Patch , once used to shelter farmworkers, were headed for a new life as tourist lodgings in an Upvalley park.
This Saturday, March 10, the yurts are finally making their move, according to volunteer coordinator Chino Yip of the , who is looking for help with the project.
“It will probably take about 5 hours,” wrote Yip in an email to park volunteers.
Volunteers should meet at the Napa County Corporate Yard at 7929 Silverado Trail at 9 a.m. Saturday, Yip said. “If we start at 9 a.m. we should be through by 1 or 2 p.m.
“As always we'll supply gloves, food and YURTS,” he wrote.
The park and open space district is installing the yurts at its newest project, Bothe Napa State Park in Calistoga, which had been slated for closure due to the state budget crisis.
Following Saturday's yurt move, the next work day is March 17 when volunteers will clear brush to install the portable dwelling places, Yip said.
