HOUSE NEWS: Art for All supplies needed, potluck, and looking forward to more gardening

For a full description of this week’s calendar, please click here.

This week, Kendera and Liz Wilson will be painting flower pots. Come join the Art for All workshop on Tuesday, 1-5, and make a pot to take home or to sell at the April craft sale. For future projects we are looking for scrap wood: small pieces of board in particular that we can use to create wall hangings. In addition, we’re hoping to put some “singleton earrings” – the earring that is left when you lose its match – to good use in the upcycled jewelry Kendera is creating. Let us know if you have any to share. Thank you!

This Thursday, 6-7:30, we’ll host a simple potluck dinner with no planned speaker or discussion. These are great opportunities for families and others to come and enjoy sharing a good meal and conversation with friends. If you have time to bring something good to eat, please do. If not, we’ll have enough, so come anyway.

Being outside in this beautiful weather is reminding us that gardening season is coming up. We have plans to expand the parking lot garden and also to do some landscaping in the backyard. John and some high school volunteers are clearing a new space in one of th parking lt islands, and we’ll be planting out the first veggies in mid-March. If you would like to help, send an email and we’ll remind you when we decide on a date and time. The donation of a hammock for the backyard has rekindled an old wish to make the backyard a peaceful place for folks to rest or eat outdoors. If you have garden or landscape experience – or plants –  and would like to help with this project, also let us know.

Hope to see you this week!
