HOUSE NEWS: Roundtable on Occupy Wall Street this Thursday, and more!
NEW RAISED BEDS ARE IN: Thanks to the folks who helped out two weeks ago, we now have our new raised beds in the parking lot garden, and have already set about planting. Broccoli and lettuce are in, soon to be joined by onions, mustard greens, kale, cauliflower and more. You can see photos of the process for putting the raised beds in by clicking here. We’re grateful to Travis and the folks at Florida Organic Growers, Grow Gainesville, the Grahams and others for helping get the new garden ready to go. Those veggies will be making it into our meals at the cafe very soon!
FIRST THURSDAY ROUNDTABLE ON OCCUPY WALL STREET: This Thursday we’ll be hosting our monthly roundtable discussion and potluck, from 6:30-8pm, with our focus being on the Occupy Wall Street movement. We’ll discuss what’s going on, what issues are in play, what the movement might mean, as well as the intersection between the OWS movement and the teachings of our various faith traditions. If you can bring a dish to share, that would be great!
NEED NEW CHEFS AND AFTERNOON VOLUNTEERS FOR CAFE: With the start of a new month, we’re looking for new “chefs-in-training” for the cafe on Wednesdays. Kelli will work with the new chefs in preparing meals for the cafe from local, in-season food, feeding upwards of 50-75 people each Wednesday. If you can commit to coming between 9:30-11:30am each Wednesday during November (excepting the Wed before Thanksgiving), we would love to have you! Just contact Kelli at our email address. Also, we’ve been a bit short on afternoon volunteers for the cafe in recent weeks. If you can join us for an hour or so anytime between 11:45am and 4pm, we’d appreciate the help. Thanks!
NO KNITTING ON HALLOWEEN: No Green House Knitters on Monday since it’s Halloween…
Special thanks to the JustFaith group for providing food and drinks for Saturday’s football game! Hope to see some of you this week!
