Lend a hand Tuesday

This was the week to recognize the many  volunteers in our community and hopefully one of the readers of this blog took action. Volunteers are still needed.  This coming Tuesday 8 a.m. if your handy, wear your own gloves and bring gardening tools.  The Town and Country Garden Club of Lake Worth  has donated greenery (don’t know what exactly) and it will be placed at the Bryant Park Stage.  Remember the Blue Star Memorial and the Triangle Park, it’s all the work of the Lake Worth garden club.

images-1 Then at 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.  same  Tuesday come out and help at the Gray Mockingbird Garden.  They are creating a free standing tile mural.  Need not be artists but a steady hand and a creative bent would be awesome.  Here are some photos of what is being done.   Again this is a volunteer endeavor    Pictured here are Jill in charge of the mural project and Brian  of the amazing organic garden.  The Produce is going to the likes of South Shores Tavern and Clary’s Corner Cafe.   If your into gardening or want to learn about ceramic tile painting, now is the time.

    The photos of the tile mural painting are lovely. This project is open to artists and aspiring artists alike, young and old. We have commenced on a very ambitious project hand painting 1000 tile mural for The Gray Mockingbird Community Garden , on the five acres that The Scottish Rites Masonic Lodge has loaned us, at 22nd Ave. N and D Street in Lake Worth 33460 just under the water tower. Come to the dining room on Tuesday and Thursday nights 6:30-7:30, an d you can meet some of the tile painters, and be given an overview of what needs to be done.
    The tile mural will be the central focus 10’x20′ center of a “living wall”, or vertical garden which will surround the wall. People of all ages have been delighted to learn tile painting, while playing with their artistic abilities, as they paint border tiles of leaves. Next week we will begin the central image. Some artists are bringing tiles home with the underglazes to paint the tiles in the comfort of their own homes. Other artists are painting during the day between 9:00a.m. and 3:00p.m. the hours that The Scottish Rites Masonic Lodge is open with an occasional closing at lunch time. You can always call Brian Kirsch, the director of The Gray Mockingbird Community Garden to discover if the gates will be open during the times when you wish to come and paint, after you have made initial contact with me, Jill on a Tuesday or Thursday night.
    The project is a very inspiring community effort. We are hoping that people with kilns and willingness to fire tiles will be forthcoming. My hope is that on Saturday May 11,2013, the day of The Old Fashioned Field Day at The Gray Mockingbird Community Garden, we can blitz the entire mural to completion. This would require about twenty artists who all wih to work together to get the job done! Let’s see how it progresses!
    AnnaMaria, thank you for all your help and thank you for the wonderful photos! Is there a possibility that you could send these photos to Brian to post on his site and also send to Wes and to Marshall to post on their sites and to post on Ekotecture Group on Facebook?
