We are a all-volunteer board. 100% of ticket costs goes to our venue, education programs and annual organization maintenance costs. If you'd like to sponsor someone or support the work, please donate through paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org
Our youth program will have morning and afternoon circle times directly after our meals, which lead to an upcycled fashion show project where youth make outfits for parents and organizers to parade in! After the structured session, children are released to “recess” a self-guided time to explore activities (seed bomb making, art, play) until the next meal. These circles and activities are optional, and otherwise the care and tending of children is assumed to be in the hands of caregivers who brought them and moderated by spontaneous community engagement. The activity tables welcome engagement no matter what age you are. Youth and Children: ages 12-18 can join for ½ price, those 0-11 are free!
