A workshop dedicated to the art of transforming junk is slated from 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Saturday, July 6 at Better Farm in Redwood.
In "Creative Upcyling and the Art of Transforming Junk",each student will bring an old, tired furniture or clothing piece to transform into something else that is functional.

Encouraged materials (anyone without the following is not excluded from attending): one piece to upcycle, sewing machine, fabric scraps, old clothing, small furniture pieces. Ages 15 and up. This workshop is being put on in partnership with betterArts.

As part of our conservation efforts and in honor of our founder and avid #birder Stephen F. Caldwell, @betterfarm has partered with the @audubonsociety to designate six acres of the property here as protected #shrubland . For that initiative, we are working to expand the #featherededge of Better Farm's forests in order to create additional nesting grounds for the #goldenwingedwarbler and other native species.
Zen and the art of water features. #artbarn is getting awfully fancy... see you all at our grand unveiling at Better Festival 6/17! www.betterfarm.org/better-festival
