Musicians and performers welcome!!! Hop on the (figurative) hay wagon with us and share your gift! We'll have some great entertainment, and invite all comers to lend a hand with verse, stories, songs, instruments, dance and whatever art form suits this bountiful occasion.

Do you do crafts? Come show them off!

    We had a nice turnout with delicious food, friendly folks, and some music, verse and magic! We ate well and enjoyed good company! Thanks Stacy Lipari for talking about organizing food security and collaborating with Repair Cafe. Kudos to Lauren Bellafiore for setting the stage and creating a warm atmosphere, and for the poetry! Many thanks to Alejandro Chêllet (http://www.alejandrochellet.info/permaculture.html) for a mesmerizing performance-art piece, wordless and otherworldly; to Andy Weintraub for his fun, fabulous magic card tricks; and to musician/teacher Mark Reynolds (http://www.prismaticmantis.com) for beautiful guitar and vocal styling to close out the night. I myself loved the acoustics of that warm, wooden space for playing tenor recorder and Spanish guitar. Thanks Joan Ewing and Wilton Duckworth for keeping Rondout Valley Permaculture alive! Your commitment to community and sustainability are deeply appreciated.

    Just a note. We rented the hall this summer for Annabelle's birthday, and the water is unpalatable. Even washing fruits and veggies made them smell. Washing dishes was torturous. I suggest bringing water for the kitchen, and for all families to bring drinks.

    I will be baking some chickens. I will bring the meat, which could be made into something or eaten alone.

    I'll bring some two alarm chicken chili. I'll bring some white rice and if anyone else wants to bring other rice for it that would be great.

    I'll be sending out a notice about the meetup today to let folks know what's up. It'll be a potluck and performance, so if you've got a story, poem, recipe, or music to share bring it along, as well as food! There's a full kitchen! More info to come!

    Hello all,
    So excited about this event and learning more about what folks are doing in the area. I am currently working along with a budding food security coalition to create a series of events called "Everybody Eats Central Ulster". - check it out on facebook. The focus is on building community while sharing individual skills and talents in a pop-up kitchen (utilizing local congregation halls).

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
