September 25 – Painted Leaves + Sticks

Switching to a different project this week in order to accommodate Dace’s absence – we’ll delay the window stars on her behalf.

Let’s bring acrylic paints and brushes to share, along with some brushes. We can collect inspiring nature stuff and turn it into artwork with paint or sharpies. If you have cool sticks, rocks or shells at home, bring those. It may also be fun to try painting with whatever we’ve collected. Please bring acrylic paint and brushes.

Shared food! Continuing the group meal fun with minestrone soup. Please volunteer in the comments for whatever ingredients (list below) strike your fancy. We decided to bring our own sides for this, as some are GF and some aren’t.

We can all chop + cook on site, even the kids, provided we have enough utensils to share. I’ll bring a cutting board, knife and a large stockpot. If others can bring cutting utensils, we won’t have to use the IHCC’s nasty one…

  1. Sorry I’m late. I can bring broth. Is that all that’s needed? I’ll try to bring some cornbread too. Things are so crazy here right now, I will not make it anywhere near 10am. I’ll aim for 11:00 so there’s still time for the soup to cook before lunch

  2. We will bring diced tomatoes, celery, and green beans. We will have hummus and gf crackers to share.
