HOUSE NEWS: Dismantling Racism and Pickling Peppers
If you’re new to the Gainesville Catholic Worker and want to learn more, coming to a Thursday Roundtable is a great entry point. Come share a meal, meet folks involved with the house, and discuss a timely topic with a diverse and interesting group. This week’s Roundtable is on the City of Gainesville’s “Dismantling Racism” initiative. Bring a dish to share if you can.
Kendera is busy meeting with artists and other supporters of the “Art for All” project. This week she’s continuing the origami jewelry-making and introducing beading. Future projects include painted wooden crosses, bookmarks and holiday cards, luggage tags, mosaics, and more. It’s from 1-5 on Tuesdays, refreshments are served, and all ages are welcome. This week, she’s also adding an extra work day on Saturday, between 1 and 3 (same time as the pepper pickling below).
This still very hot weather is providing us with a bumper crop of peppers (and not much else…). We’ll be making southern hot pepper sauce (perfect on black-eyed peas and collard greens) and canning pickled jalapenos on Saturday, 1-3pm. If you’d like to learn and/or help, email Kelli – gvillecw[a]yahoo[dot]com, so we’ll know how many to expect.
Hope to see you!
