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.
