Phew! So much going on. I'll have to make some choices about what I'm able to attend, and when I need to stay home and knit/bake/clean/garden.
This weekend though I hope to press some cider at the October foodmakers potluck and also pick up some native plants at the Herring Run native plant sale.
Oh no, how could I have forgotten to add this in my original post. I forgot to mention DIY FEST!
We're going to have all sorts of awesome workshops, like home brewing, urban foraging, wildlife survival skills, DIY infant care, yarn re-use, bike repair, and self-publishing with zines.
Plus for the first time ever we're going to have a panel speak about alternative business models from local examples Red Emma's, Baltimore Bicycle Works, and non-profit umbrella organization Fusion.
The event takes place from 12-6 pm at 2640 St. Paul, and it's FREE!
Hope you enjoy this October, whatever you do!
