I am thrilled to share that Mary Ellen Ryall, Butterfly Woman Publishing owner and Happy Tonics, Inc. board member, will be offering environmental education programs at Gateway Park along the Nashua River in Fitchburg, MA. Shelia Lumi, director, Central Massachusetts Art and Agriculture Coalition, will work with Ryall in offering environmental projects and gardening talks at the park. There is a Community Garden within the park that Lumi will be in charge of. She is the director of the monthly local Fitchburg Farmers Market at Fitchburg Art Museum.
This weekend I was busy writing an article for a new magazine. I don’t want to talk about it at present, at least until the quarterly magazine is published.
That was fun.
I will be selling one of my books, My Name is Butterfly, Farmers Market at Fitchburg Art Museum.
February 7, 4 pm – 7 pm
The Monarch Butterfly Coloring Book is on order. The winter event is an interesting time for food shoppers and crafters alike. There is always something new and exciting happening at the museum. Nick Capasso, Director, will be greeting visitors. Capasso recently came on board and wants to get to know the community.
I feel pretty confident that Vee Lashua, organic farmer, will be selling award winning chili. I tried it last month and I am coming back for more. It is absolutely delicious. Wish I had more details. I heard there might be music, but don’t hold me to it.
If you are in the area, stop on by. FREE admission to Fitchburg Art Museum on First Thursday. What a wonderful opportunity to come out and enjoy art, culture and to support our local farmers. Kindred spirits meet each; old friends enjoy meeting new people.
Local farmers support local food security.
January 3 – Fitchburg Farmers Market at Fitchburg Art Museum will take place from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. I feel fortunate to be invited as a member to join the association this evening. I will be selling my books tonight at the once a month function. I will bring camera to take some photos and share folk stories afterwards of the very people who are making wonderful changes right here in Fitchburg, MA.
At 7 p.m. the First Thursday Fitchburg Drum Circle will meet at First Parish Church.
Hope Butterfly Woman friends are kicking up their heels in the New Year.
