Yesterday's swap at Rustic Sunflower Farm was so much fun! Thank you so much Lena and Luis Macias for hosting us for the second time. Thanks to everyone who drove out and as always, I hope that everyone had as much fun as we did.
What an amazing variety of items that were brought and it's always fantastic to meet new people and to catch up with friends. We're hoping to get a location soon for the next swap, which will be after 4th of July weekend. Stay tuned for more information on that!
If you weren't at the swap yesterday and haven't heard yet, Wendy and I have launched our first Kickstarter project -Colorado Springs Community Dinner- and hope that people in the community will be as excited as we are about it. This outdoor dinner is open to any resident of Colorado Springs, but space will be limited! It's up to all of us to make this a success, an unconditional, mutual gift to one another. We will take donations and note those who have given, but this will not be a sponsored event. This is a fully community-powered event. We will each be responsible for the amazing turn out!
Wendy and I have been talking about a community powered potluck dinner for a while now, so please click here for more information. We are also proud to introduce the Colorado Springs Community Alliance, a new non-profit organization! CSCA's mission is to provide the residents of Colorado Springs with opportunities to engage with each other, support locally owned businesses, educate residents about local food and support innovative, small community projects.
Thanks again to everyone who makes our swaps so fun and successful. For us it's all about community, meeting new friends, and hopefully inspiring others to share their knowledge and skills. I was a little more distracted than usual at yesterday's swap, so I didn't take as many photos and missed a few items. Sorry about that! See you at the next swap.
