It’s been a busy week – a good week with three community events.
Jordanne & I kicked off community outreach with canning classes at a local high school. A morning’s jamming session resulted in 24 jars of strawberry jam that will be donated to a local food bank. The girls really enjoyed the fruits of their labor and of course had FUN!
The following day Jordanne & I participated in a fair at next door’s middle school selling soaps, produce and preserves (our front porch collective is growing – email firstname.lastname@example.org if interested in joining) It was great to hang out and finally meet many of the parents and teachers that we see pass our home on a daily basis.
The week of outreach ended at another local school, this time at the beautiful campus of Cal Tech.
Over 100 people packed the room for the presentation and, for a treat, we brought some homegrown guavas and preserves for folks to enjoy after the film screening and presentation – which was devoured completely!
Thanks to Lauren at Westridge, the folks at New Horizon (and our friend Romana), along with Rose & Ronnie, Net Impact Group and Cal Tech for such a great and productive week.
