Rebirth the Earth (a little): Sun. Aug. 11 3-6pm

Jeff Steele, Friends of Starkweather Creek and Community Unity Arts will host a little step to ‘rebirth the earth’
Sunday 3 to 6pm
at McCormick Park (where Commercial crosses Starkweather Creek)
mixing native plantings with community clay co-creations.
The 60 plants are surplus from Jeff’s growing for Dane County’s native plant program.
The clay is from last year’s clay stomp at AtwoodFest…  and a 1989 Soviet-American clay stomp.
With the plants…
we will be guided by Jeff’s experience as a restoration ecologist and Eken neighborhood champion.
With the clay…
we will carve one or two small mural flats (to be glazed and fired later in a kiln)…
and maybe carve a temporary piece out of a clay block (leaving to decay back into the earth)
Some of these (and potential) concepts are in this six minute video and this web page.
Jeff promises some light snacks, refreshments and fire at his nearby creekside home after.
