Whatzup on 5th St.?

We are planning a small gathering/pot luck on Feb. 8th around 6pm, so get yourselves to 816 E. 5th St. and hear Rick Stanton play guitar. Anyone is welcome to bring an instrument and play.    We’re going to give the kids & their parents some fun. It’ll be open mic night for anyone who wants to join in. With the weather so cold we’ll be inside so it might be rather cozy.

We’ll explain our plans, share some ideas, get ideas from the kids and most importantly involve the kids so many of the programs are there’s.
Today we had Renee and Bonnie visit the Pueblo House and what a great meeting of the minds!  Both had seen the article in the Chieftain. Renee (2nd visit) brought the start of a Hydroponics system and she is going to be setting us up with a grow/aquarium unit. This was Bonnie’s first time to PH and she was thrilled at what’s going on here and what we’re planning to do in future.  Her boyfriend builds chicken coops and she’s going to ask if he would supervise the building of a great coop (made from our shed).  We already have the pen and other things there.   We’re looking for some artists to work on the boat and make something out of it.  Ideas?
It’s been a whirlwind of activity here with people wanting to join in the excitement here on 5th St. in Pueblo. We have gardeners, artists, musicians and labor help all coming together to make this place unique and sustainable. We’re planning our yard and expect to have chickens soon. The gardens will be a big thing this year and we have the offer of another lot for planting if we want it. Both Renee and Bonnie know local people with varying talent, so we’re hoping they will drop by to meet us. Continue reading
