Two chances to help at the Microfarm this week!
TWO CHANCES TO HELP WITH THE MICROFARM THIS WEEK: In addition to our usual Microfarm Morning at Black Acres Microfarm on Thursday morning, 1/23, from 8-11:30, this coming Saturday, 1/25 from 9am-12pm will be the monthly Microfarm Workday for January. Contact Jade Allen email (email@example.com) or phone (352-337-0817) for questions and/or directions to BAM (very centrally located in the heart of Gainesville). BAM provides much of the produce we use at the Green House so they are essential to the work we do. Please come help if you can!
COFFEE SHOPS: Monday, Tuesday and Friday mornings from 7:30-9:30 we will be having our usual coffee shops–volunteers asked to arrive at 7:15 if possible. Volunteers are also needed for cleanup from about 9:30-10:30 AM. Donations of breakfast foods such as fresh fruit, boiled eggs, baked goods, and fair trade coffee are welcome. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up to volunteer or to bring food.
DOROTHY’S CAFÉ: Come help us prepare and serve a nutritious home-cooked meal in a hospitable atmosphere this Wednesday. Preparation is from 9:30-12, serving/clean-up from 12-2:30, and clean-up from 2:30-3:30. Contact us at email@example.com for more information, or click here to sign up.
ART-FOR-ALL: Art-for-All is meeting this Saturday, 1/25, from 2-4pm at the Green House. If you enjoy crafting and turning up-cycled items into something beautiful, please join them! No prior crafting experience required. Children are welcome.
QUOTATION OF THE WEEK:
Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction.
–Martin Luther King, Jr.
Christmas 1957, in a sermon about Jesus’ command to love one’s enemies.
