Handspun & Community Gardens & Earth Day

The first skein of yarn from Jane’s wool:

pict1714_2I am pleased with it.  I have enough dyed for at least one more skein.  Then I want to make something with it for Jane.  But what?

On Saturday some of our Cub Scouts went to help at the Weed & Seed Community Garden project at the Barnett Center in Huntington.  The photos aren’t too great because it was so bright, everyone’s faces are too much in shadow.  Oh well.

Earth Day celebration at the Weed & Seed Community Garden at the old Barnett Center, 3-7 pm on Wednesday, April 22. Corner of Hal Greer and 10th Ave. in Huntington, WV.

 Governor Manchin, Mayor Wolfe & Miss West Virginia United States will be on hand and boys from Cub Scout Pack 7 will lead the Pledge of Allegiance at around 4 pm for the garden dedication. One of the crafts will be making bird feeders from plastic bottles, thereby reducing waste by re-using them!

The flyer says that inexpensive food, lots of fun & free stuff to help you get on your way to helping the earth!

Bring a bag of recyclables, a beanie baby/Webkinz animal or a 3/5 gallon plastic pot and receive a free gift! (Recyclables accepted: cardboard, paper, aluminum, tin or computer components) Beanie Babies and Webkinz animals will be given to children in local hospitals by the Little Earth Angels Club. Plastic pots will be used to grow trees for next year’s re-tree Huntington movement.
