Block Party + Rain???!!!

Hello all Tra-fifth Folk! Jane, Sean and I are going ahead with the “block party” but it will be inside – send me a note to or call 604-617-0142 for more info.

Hope to see you. I’m making a gigantic veggie chili – so there’ll be lots to eat!

Bird Art

We’re going to make a bird for International Bird Art Installation Day – maybe lots of birds.

It seems a crow might be the most obvious for our ‘hood. What do you think?

We’ll use morning glory, ivy, and any other twigs and branches – bring some along on Sat. Sept 22.

Some other items that might be useful include: chicken wire, wire snips, recycled plastic, feathers (esp crow feathers!)

Maybe we’ll do some origami bird (crane) making too. Janet, what do you think?

Fall Block Party

My friends Jane and Sean and I are cooking up a block party in the ‘hood.

Stay tuned for details.

We’re looking at Sat. Sept 22 from 4-8pm – near Trafifth – to be confirmed as we need to get 50% signatures of residents to block off the street.

4pm on – Creating a Bird out of ivy and morning glory etc. to hang for International Bird Art Installation Day – October 7

Skills sharing – bring cards, brochures, posters or just handwrite a note – we’d like to get to know who’s in the ‘hood and if you have a skill to share for free, barter or $$, let us know. Jane’s a baker; I’m an artist.. what about you?

Art show – bring a visual art piece to share your art with others. or items for sale if you wish.


Do you have patio; plastic furniture you can bring out?

Food for potluck – dinner starts @ 5:30pm

Music – are you (or have you ever been or wanna be) a musician? We’d love to have live music.
