Moving towards Sustainability

I have to tell you about this incredible event here is Haworth this Saturday, June 27th. Moving toward Sustainability. There will be speakers, demonstrations, vendors, food, music and so much more. Everything to do with making the world a healther place.

My husband Dave is helping to organize this, but most of the work is being done by the host, Leigh Merinoff. Here is what she has to say, “Things we can do to create a sustainable future” will be the focus of a free, community festival sponsored by the environmental group, Moving Toward Sustainability, on Saturday, June 27, 2009 in Haworth, New Jersey. The festival will run from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and will be held in the yard of Leigh and Charlie Merinoff at 317 Massachusetts Avenue, Haworth, New Jersey. Rain date is June 28, 2009.

The day-long festival will feature a variety of informative, “how to” demonstrations and workshops on such topics as how to grow, gather, can and ferment fruits and veggies, cultivating mushrooms, composting, and backyard beekeeping. There will be tours and demonstrations held in the fruit orchard, the rain garden, the kitchen garden, and the composting area explaining the successes and failures at growing edibles in the peri-urban setting. There also will be a backyard chicken coop building project and an arts and crafts projects for kids.

I know that I am really looking forward to it. Please come by of you are in the neighborhood.

More Letterpress Goodness

The next grouping is based on color.  There was a definite theme as to what were the hot colors in the swap.  Yellow, orange and teal, or some combination of those.  In fact, over half the prints had at least one of these colors in them.  Here are some of them.

Stay tuned for more to come!
