DOUBLE DOSE OF ART: First, the Green House Knitters are in full swing on Monday evenings, 7:30-9:30pm. Come and work on a project of your own, create something for our friends who live on the street (especially for when the weather turns cold), or learn how to knit and crochet. Plus, the Knitters are gearing up for a new project to begin Monday, October 3rd–making amazing rugs out of old t-shirts. THEN… On Saturday, October 1st we are double-booked with artists for Art for All. Fiber artists Mary Peer and Linda Gardner will be teaching “urban flower”-making – creating sweet flowers from salvaged fabric to use as pins or hair decor. And UF Arts major Brittany Acocelli will be starting a painting project. Try to arrive right at 1 to learn to create something beautiful with paint. Flower-creating will be ongoing between 1 and 3:30.

Chefs must be able to start at 9:30am and stay till at least 11:30am on Wednesdays. Contact Kelli with questions or to sign on!
MARK IT DOWN ON YOUR SCHEDULE: We’re very excited to announce our Roundtable for October! Roundtables are happening on the first Thursday of each month this semester, from 6:30-8pm, and include a potluck dinner. University of Florida professor Whitney Sanford and graduate student in religion Vickie Machado (our very own) will be co-leading a roundtable discussion on “Mindful Living”, Thursday, October 6th at the Gainesville Catholic Worker House. They will lead the conversation with Dr. Sanford’s current work with Gandhian intentional communities as well as Vickie’s summer experience with the environmental faith group, EcoStewards. Hope you mark it down for next week and join us!
READY FOR SOME MORE FOOTBALL? We’ll be showing the Gators versus Alabama at 8pm on Saturday night for any guests and friends who want to join us. We’re really grateful to TiAnna and the youth group at Holy Faith Catholic Church for providing some of the food and joining us for the festivities!
