Flower Clock July 15, 2010

In 1751 Carl Linneaus designed a clock that was made entirely of living flowers that open and close at predictable times. The clock garden was accurate to within 30mins.

 

“FARMS: Food, Art, Relationships, & Food — Sustainably!” May 17, 2010

I stumbled upon this website today called Farmer Jane that spotlights women making changes in the food system. The one they are featuring this week is Molly Rockamann, who at 28 is in charge of EarthDance farms in Missouri: “The mission of EarthDance is to grow and inspire locals FARMS–Food, Art, Relationships, & Food–Sustainably!”

Here’s a snippet of the article/interview that speaks to one my particular agendas:

“…I have dreams of our farm (and other farms) being not only a center of food production but also of art and music production. We’ve started to show our artistic side in small ways, like doing a community mural painting to install on the farm, and hosting a small outdoor concert there. Eventually I’d like to create an artist-in-residence and musician-in-residence program, where in exchange for living on the farm (and eating our veggies) they’d host free workshops for the youth in the neighborhood and contribute a lasting piece of art to the farmscape. I’d also love to re-construct an old barn on the property and use the space to host concerts, workshops, and barn dances! Once we’ve really built a solid foundation for the organization in Ferguson, where we’re currently farming and running an apprenticeship program, I want to help start organic farming training centers/cultural celebration centers in other parts of the world.”

Yeah!

 

Two words: ART BARN March 2, 2010

Filed under: Art — serif @ 5:50 am

It would be amazing to have dedicated space for art and crafts and noises. space for throwing paint or using a lathe or throwing bowls on a wheel. Music too needs a home though a nice dry one for the sake of the instruments.

What kinds of arts should we have space for? dedicated facilities or simply studio rooms and storage spaces? Thoughts?

 

Let’s throw down our thoughts, Lovelies! February 28, 2010

Manifest Love Beauty Think Together Dream New Reality Share Evolve Live Really Ridiculously Well Together Vision.   Yes.

so, lovelies, let’s use this to throw down our daily thoughts about community, and build a dialog over time. This blog should serve as a group journal of sorts. Put down your thoughts, inspiration, ideas, and over time we’ll  shape this thing we call life.  🙂

So, let’s each become admins to this blog and then everyone can post thoughts and tag them by category, so the posts can then be sorted anytime by subject! These can be well articulated, or just quickly jotted down. More is better! Include links, pics etc.  We can comment on posts to have a conversation and also have conversations by making new posts that link to previous ones.  (This post is tagged with all the categories so far, just so they show up)

Let’s also build some pages to put down central ideas as they emerge. These can also be edited by all over time.

I love you all, and am so excited to start talking with you this way.
