Now for some good news. The Hearth Austin raised over $1100 for The Festival Beach Food Forest at last week’s Into the Wild: True Tales from Environmental Activists event. PLUS we signed up lots of volunteers. Thank you to activists and storytellers Aly Tharp, Josh Blaine, Kendra Bones, Amy Stansbury, and Lukus Ebert. Also thanks to bluegrass band Steel Betty and musician Justin Stewart from CreekPeople. What a great, heartfelt event. Next Austin event will be on Saturday, July 1 from 4 to 6pm at the Mexican American Center with a gallery of over 100 written stories from undocumented immigrants and live stories from Latino Immigrants.
The Hearth Austin is hosting INTO THE WILD:TRUE TALES FROM ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVISTS this Thursday, May 25th 7:30 to 9:30pm at The North Door. Hosted by Mark Yaconelli with music by bluegrass band Steel Betty and Justin Stewart. The event will present true stories by 6 local young adults involved in environmental activism in Austin.
