HOUSE NEWS: Extra help needed at the microfarm and more…

Click here to see an entire list of what is happening this week at the Gainesville Catholic Worker.

LATEST SUMMARY FROM THE SCRIPTURE STUDY: Click here, “Luke 9:28-36 – Shut up and listen to him,” to see a short summary of our conversation from last week’s Scripture study around the Transfiguration episode in Luke’s gospel. This reading from Luke was yesterday’s gospel reading for the Second Sunday of Lent. Our Lenten Scripture study will continue this week on Wednesday, 7:30-9pm. Everyone is welcome.

EXTRA HELP AT THE MICROFARM: We’ve been a little short-handed at BAM (Black Acres Microfarm) for our weekly and monthly workdays. If you’re looking for a great, outdoor, fun, interesting volunteer gig, consider helping out at BAM. Jade and Lynn have done extraordinary things with their property (olive trees, mango trees, blackberry bushes, bee hives!) and Jade is always willing to pass on what he has learned and help others get started in cultivating a garden or more on their own land. The microfarm provides so much good produce to the people we see, and having a little extra help in its upkeep would be so good right now. The regular weekly workday is Thursday, anytime between 8am and noon. The monthly workday is the fourth Saturday of the month from 9am-noon. This is a great opportunity for families and groups! Email us if you want more info and we’ll put you in touch with Jade.

PAPER, NOT PLASTIC: On Saturday, from 1-4pm, the Art for All group will be making paper flowers and paper cranes. The Green House Knitters are now meeting during the same time frame at the house, so bring your knitting or crocheting if you’re interested!

SKELETON SCHEDULE NEXT WEEK, MARCH 3-9: During the UF Spring Break, March 3-9, we’ll be on a skeleton schedule, with many of our projects taking the week off. We’ll still be open but make sure to check out the schedule for what is happening (Art for All, Green House Knitters, etc.) and what is not (regular house hours, Breakfast@theGreenHouse and Dorothy’s Cafe). I will also NOT be sending out a “This Week” email next week. We’ll return to our regular schedule on March 10.

Hope to see many of you this week!
