Friends, I am so happy to tell you that I have joined forces with Andrew Kleiner, author of REMEMBER, a blog about preserving the natural dignity and beauty of the parks and waterways in the Lehigh Valley. What’s great about Andrew is that while so many of us talk about “saving the planet” in terms of buying recycled-paper products and saving up for a new hybrid car, Andrew spends most of his time in and out of class actually in the environment, outdoors, getting his hands and feet dirty. His efforts just got him unanimously elected to the EAC – Environmental Advisory Council.
We with our powers combined, we are hosting a SAVE THE PARKS & KALES public event! If you’re in the Lehigh Valley, you will certainly want to come out for fun, friends and FOOD (and meet some other veg-folks). Here is a description, as per Andrew’s blog.:
“In the midst of continued controversy, and what is slowly becoming a very active summer season of volunteer stewardship, I imagine it is incredibly easy to forget that our parks are places of refuge, relaxation, community, connection and true spirit.
After yesterday’s storm of comments and seeming concern, I am looking forward to large turnouts at :
Save The Parks: Litter Pick Up at Bucky Boyle
Save The Parks: Old Fairgrounds Clean Up and Restoration
It is with this in mind that I am incredibly excited to announce that Remember will be joining forces with Save The Kales to present an afternoon of food, fun, sunlight (fingers crossed) and connection.
Save The Kales is a blog written by a foodie, citizen-advocate, and all around awesome lady by the name of Jaime K. Jaime also writes a blog focusing on the strength of community in Bethlehem, calledHEART OF STEELcity.
I have rented Pavilion number three and I ask that you please RSVP so Jaime and I know how much food to prepare.
Bring a Frisbee.
Bring a lawn chair.
Most importantly, bring yourself, eat great food, sit back and Remember:
”Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.” Muir
I will be sharing many particular details in the coming weeks, but also consider this a great day to kick back after what I am hoping are two great clean ups and restorations.
There will be a lot fun that afternoon. Get excited, spread the word and also, Save The Kales.
More details to come…. MARK YOUR CALENDAR NOW!”
This event will be FREE, donations accepted for cost of food (catered by me!) and pavilion rental. Family-friendly.
MORE DETAILS TO COME! WHO’S WITH ME!?
