Green Art - Earth Day 4/22

A great turn out in celebration of our Mother Earth!!! We had members of the community from the very young to our respected elders stop by and participate in the fun. Using recycled materials from everyday products we created a mural. Outside we planted some bush bean seeds and put each person's name on the pot so they can watch the progress. It was a positive day and we raised awareness in the 3 Rs and hopefully can make programs like this a regular gathering. Thanks to Wabash Antiques & Feeds (a Heights neighbor) for donating the seeds, pots and soil.

Outreach at the Westheimer Block Party - 4/12

We went as a school community to hang out and talk to folks about unschooling and what we are doing here in Houston. There were a lot of people out and we met some cool folks and saw some friends we haven't seen in a while. The kids had fun and we got to hear some music...good and bad! But that's another blog...Thanks to the Free Press for letting us set up a booth.
