Activities for Kids

This summer, we are offering two days of children’s activities during the week (paper modeling on Wednesdays and storytelling & art activities on Thursdays), as well as the occasional special event.  In the past, we have charged for the activities–this year, the activities are free. We do, however, ask participants to consider leaving a donation in the depot jar to help defray expenses and chip in to the paint fund. Depending on demand (and given that we have rather limited space), we will add additional days or times to the schedule as needed.
Activities for Adults

Recipe & Produce Swap: 2nd & 4th Sundays, 2-3:30 p.m. Swap recipes, trade hints, and get rid of the inevitable over-abundance of zucchini and tomatoes. A book chat for folks who love to cook.
