Local food also usually comes from small farms.

What fruits are in season in this area? Blueberries, figs, grapes, melons, apples, raspberries, pears and peaches.

Even if there is no upgrade or resale market, there's no need for junk to sit in the back of the closet unused. 

This mixed media art class/workshop alters the appearance and function of old stuff.  Techniques include gluing, bolting, painting and cutting.  The materials include soda cans, screws, buttons, bottle caps, old CD's, scraps of trim, fabric, etc.  

Recycling is a critical part of saving the environment.  This class/workshop presents an alternative to throwing away old junk by transforming it into new, beautiful and useful items.  This is a teen program.  Tweens are also welcome.
