Community Weaving @ Coffee, Compost, and Conversation
We have a very special Coffee, Compost, and Conversation to kick off the new year! Artist Jeeyun Ha will be leading a Community Weaving at the farm using upcycled and natural materials. Weaving together beautifies the community by taking waste and transforming it into multi functional art while having fun building relationships in the process.
Please join us and along with your food scraps, bring any natural vines, fabric scraps or old clothing & blankets & sheets, unused beads, charms, jewelry, chains, socks, shoe laces, yarn, twine, rope, or thread! For natural materials, we can use long grasses, thin branches, long stem flowers, vines, pine cones, palm fronds, bamboo, and bark!
As always, there will be a compost demonstration, free coffee served by the generous 3Coffee.LA, and a potluck brunch, so please bring a dish to share.
Jeeyun Ha is a multi media artist & sustainable landscape designer at artfloraflux.format.com

What to Bring
- Organic Matter - All attendees are REQUIRED (yes, absolutely required!) to bring something to add to our compost pile for our compost demonstration.
* Suggested items for composting include: veggie scraps from your kitchen, fruit peels, leftover food that's been leftover too long, coffee grounds, egg shells, leaves from your trees, fiber leftover from juicing, etc.
* How much should you bring, you might ask? Well, whatever is reasonable for you to carry. The point of this exercise is to get people to realize what resources around them (such as vegetable scraps) are being "wasted" and can instead be put ot beneficial use (like making compost!)
- Food for the Potluck - Please bring a dish to share for our potluck brunch. You can bring anything you like, just bring enough to share. If you are not sure what to bring, here are some suggestions:
* Suggestions for potluck: pancakes, cut fruit, fruit salad, muffins, bread, oatmeal toppings (we will be making oatmeal, a large omelette, frittata, etc.
- Dishes for the Potluck - All Growing Club events are Zero Waste events. We do not use disposable plates, cups, or utensils. Bring your own plates, coffee mugs, and utensils. We will have a sink setup for washing dishes.
