What's the Buzz? LOLA Art Crawl!

Just a year ago we were tossing stones and chips about, placing plants here and there,,, hoping to get our "Podners for Peas" Rain Garden in good form WHEN a friendly fellow stopped at the fence to ask if we might want to host an artist (or two) in our gazebo for the LOLA Art Crawl?!

It was the incentive we needed to get things pulled together and open doors to Belle's ToolBox :0)

So,,, a year later, we'd like to share some other connections made with the neighborhood and community. 
 
  • ELL 7th graders from Sanford came to the TBox once a week to build cardboard structures, design wood sculptures, and discover environmental possibilities!
  • Howe Leadership students visited several times to talk 'environment'; wood signs were painted for their Community Garden :0)
  • East Lake Library invited Belles to offer an activity highlighting the traveling environmental exhibit.
  • Share the RiverGorge signs made by kids in the park program were again spread thru neighborhood for the annual  event.
  • LongFellow Cornfeed 'table' offered a fun and yummy way to connect with the neighborhood.
  • City Programs related to the environment were adopted by Belle's - Trash/Recycle canisters and Adopt-A-Sewer! 
  • A number of other community programs have visited to discover how we might partner in our common goals.
  • The Messenger, StarTribune, and more recently, Kare 11, were kind enough to seek us out and offer info to the community about our project :0)

As engaging as all of these connections have been, our favorite were those with young families,,, each and every, who came to find some fun at the TBox,,, together!!!
So, here's hoping for another year of building community - with your help!!

Want to give a giant thanks to Team Jen/Nels n Nara - their energy is invaluable to the vision of the project as is that of my boyfriend of 39 years, Mark - he's a peach :0)

Always in Peace and Love from Lucy and the crew
