More CSA members will be joining us for our second and final pop-up this week.
Weaver Younghands makes Sonoran ecology-themed lunar calendars, designed for observing and tracking your environment, health, biorhythms, gardening, harvesting, or as a daily art/reflection practice. Each cycle aligns with a seasonal illustration that represents something about our local ecology. The theme this year is BREATH, teaching about how plants, animals, and fungi sustain life by cycling the atmosphere between them. Detailed descriptions are in the book, plus info on our own human lungs and breathing, and info on how to use the book. There is also a wall print.
Lisa Rooney and Lindee Zimmer will also be joining us. Lisa is a local farmer and artist, whose work surrounds connection to land and community. She works primarily in clay, in both her 3d and 2d work. Her ceramic works fuse form with function to to support sustainability, agriculture, and our connection to food. She also forages local clays to create handmade watercolors for her paintings. You can find her work online at www.lisarooney.net, and follow along @lisarooney.studio on instagram. Lindee is a multidisciplinary artist, teacher and organizer. Her work invokes connections in all facets. Through murals, painting, sculpting and collaboration, she encourages and explores relationships to the living world and each other.
Finally, inside the courtyard, Iskashitaa will be selling products from their culinary program including marmalade, jelly, dried herbs, and mulled cider/wine kits.
Refugee and non-refugee volunteers gather in a commercial kitchen to produce artisanal products with local food from their gleaning, harvesting and food rescue programs.
Iskashitaa’s products have a Tucson City of Gastronomy Artisan Certification, and help fund programs that foster community engagement and social integration for refugees in a fun, welcoming environment!
ReDoodle is a local artisan with a new batch of hand-carved cookware made from reclaimed mesquite, in addition to her wooden hair ornaments and other wares.
