what a spot! and perfect timing for the good to know gifts that give project (#g2kgtg).
in the summer of 2014, thegreenrock.ca Conservation Corps Green Team scored great stories of good, smart things being made (and sold) in the Quidi Vidi Village Plantation. there are special things to be found here: prints, linens, textiles, pottery. a joy to give, yummy good to receive, so local and so very beautiful. being in that place gives space to the soul. it’s actually ‘in’ the gut – you have to drive past the entrance to Mallard Cottage then turn left.
click here for the vid – http://youtu.be/40tKXbpVIDw – and hear what textile artist Joelle Blandford and clay artist Laura Higenell have to say about their wares, and what makes Quidi Vidi Plantation a haven for artists. the QV Plantation is open to the public Tuesdays-Saturdays. not all the artists are there all the time, but they are are helpful crowd to each other, and to customers so you can purchase. for more on the Plantation visit http://www.quidividivillageplantation.com/
in July and August 2014 thegreenrock.ca Conservation Corps Green Team – Tamara Segura, Chris Ball, David Maher and Team Lead Jeff Smyth talked and taped, walked in the sun, swung on the swings, got out there and got inspired by the great green good going on in the Northeast Avalon. Over the coming months their work will be released on thegreenrock.ca.
thegreenrock.ca Conservation Corps Green Team 2014 was sponsored by Junior Forest Wardens NL. (thank you!)
