Have we got a fun activity lined up this week — garden photography! Award-winning photographer Chris Wooley of Head and Tails Photo is going to show you how to put your best flower forward when showing off your home garden on Instagram or Facebook. He’ll go over macro settings, bokeh, filters and other ways to make your flowers and other plants look their best. So feel free to bring your camera, any questions you may have, and any photos you want to show off.
The Kids Eating Right: Nutrition and Exercise for Life (KERNEL) pilot program is launching today too. Organized by us and Catholic Charities’ Food for All initiative, this marks the start of a weekly kid-friendly activity that focuses on healthy eating and exercise. It’s safe, free and lots of fun, so bring your children and grandchildren! This week kids will get to transplant a zucchini of their own and learn how to tend and harvest it.
SafeLink Wireless is going to be joining us at the market today too. Through the federal Lifeline program, they’re able to give qualifying individuals free mobile devices and voice plans they need to to connect to jobs, family and emergency services at no cost. If you think you might be eligible (folks on SNAP, SSI, TANF and other assistance programs are good candidates), please stop by the market today and find out more at the SafeLink booth.
Our musician today is
Hannah Siglin, another market favorite. She sings and plays beautifully. Andrew Kunellis, a songsmith from the Oakland area who’s playing our market for the first time. (Hannah is actually scheduled for next week!)
And, yes, today there will be Korean food from Spokane Hope Christian Reformed Church to eat in or take out. You’ll find them in the basement of Knox. Just follow the sandwich boards — or the heavenly scent of authentic Korean food.
Oh, and there are still a few remaining dump passes worth $20 each for Emerson-Garfield Neighborhood residents. First come, first served.
