Cock-a-Doodle-Doo!–December 4, 2013

Lots more rooster painting for our:

Art Opening & Celebration – Crow and Grow – Paintings of Roosters Created by the Children’s Community Garden Group

Sustainable CAPE’s Children’s Community Garden behind the library teaches children about growing fruits and vegetables in the spring, summer and fall and how food relates to health. In the winter months, we concentrate on artwork as a means of reflection about our garden experiences. Several participants (and Garden volunteers!) have chickens, we’ve visited with chicks in the spring, and we discuss organic soil amendments – some of which comes from chickens! The February exhibition focuses on the beauty of our feathered friends and what is needed to grow a healthy garden, a healthy flock, and a healthy community.
In addition, the children are raising money to buy chickens through Heifer International as well as garden supplies for the coming year. For just $20, we can provide a family in need with a starter flock of 10 to 50 chicks, along with the training that will empower them to turn your generosity into a steady source of nutrition and income. Donations can be made out to Heifer International or Sustainable CAPE and left at the library.

All Library Programs Suspended through April. Please revisit our website for updates!
