I've been told that it has been in Mother Nature's recent tradition to rain during Durham's Earth Day Fest -- this year was no different.
And hovering around 55 degrees, it was rainy AND cold. But that doesn't stop us from bringing the lemonade and the...bee boxes?
Yes, that's right -- our most recent collaboration involved a raffle, bee boxes, salvaged paint, a drop cloth and cold, wet, happy kids painting a pollinator mural! Even with less than ideal conditions, we were still able to raise $100 for DPS Hub Farm. Our raffle included beautiful gifts from Fillaree, Don't Waste Durham, Tilthy Rich, and Global Breath Studio. Thank you all so much for your contributions! (above images by Stephanie Leathers)
Experiencing FOMO yet? Don't worry, we'll definitely be doing this again soon...
