Need Haiku Competitors

Folks – I need to find a minimum of 4 competitors for this upcoming Haiku event in Richmond. I need 4+ people to commit to coming out, bringing 20-30 pre-written haiku (simply a three line poem, lines containing 5-7-5 syllables) and competing. Who is gonna help me out this next event?? May 17th at 8pm at 123 E. main st. Rva aka Electric Nomad Dance Studio. Possible prizes. Your Haiku can be about anything. Also, if you are interested in sponsoring these events, so we can pay the poets and give them prizes, please hit me up. I am not the main organizer of this event but I love the shit out of it and I am competing against Raven Mack in the Life Match, so I am trying to help. This Southern Gothic Futurism haiku thing brings together people to create a community of cousins, it celebrates storytelling, the south, weirdos and queerdos and all in between. It is legit fun and some of the best laughing I do each month (the event goes down in Cville and Rva check it out) email me at mokarnage@gmail.com for info or to commit

Richmond Food Not Bombs serving in the cold

Richmond Food Not Bombs has been serving free, vegetarian meals for over 23 (24?25?) Years now in Richmond. Usually served in Monroe Park, the group has persevered through the closing of that park and now serves routinely on Sundays in Abner Clay Park.

Additionally they serve on Mondays and every night when it is below 40 degrees outside of the cold weather shelter in Richmond. It will be in the single digits next couple nights. Please encourage people sleeping outside to take shelter at the Cold weather/Overflow shelter at 9th and Marshall. Make breakfast at your house and serve there at 5am sharp or come help cook at Createspace on Wickham at 5pm every night if you want to do something nice.

The new art is by Bizhan of Mended Arrow. http://www.mendedarrow.com for more of his amazing work.

The cooksite for Food Not Bombs is at Create Space at 607 Wickham Street on the Northside.

They are always looking for donations of money, food, kitchen equipment, vehicles, kitchen equipment repair or vehicle repair. They are also always looking for volunteers to drive, pick items up, help cook, help clean, and help serve. Helping with promotion is another way you can get involved.

Food Not Bombs seeks to save food from landfills, keep people from being hungry, and work for housing justice. The group does a ton of solidarity work with homeless/houseless people. 

Find Richmond Food Not Bombs on Facebook and get involved!!!

New Year’s Resolution

I love lists, and I love resolutions. I often come up with overly ambitious lists for my New Year. 2017 has been a year of barely keeping my head above water, what with farming, Herbalism, two toddlers, construction business and getting to job of opening and running a café for a church. And then managing the Farmer’s Market was thrown in too. I have pahlenty (sic) to do.  I may not make a big list this year. It may be something as simple as ‘have 2 days off a week’. Not quite sure yet.

In the mean time, I have decided to give a 20% discount on coffees, teas, and smoothies to people who come into The Cafe @ St. Stephen’s and write down one of their New Year’s Resolutions for us to display. We want to celebrate, encourage, and inspire everyone who is trying to make positive changes in their lives.

So come by 6000 Grove Avenue and get a discount from now until the end of January. I want to see what goals Richmond has for the new year.
