  1. Hi, Christie!

    I did a workshop with New Horizons students from Shorewood at the Riverside Urban Ecology Center yesterday. Their teacher, Bodhan Nodelsky (sp?) told me about your community art gathering, I think on certain Thursdays. I’d like to learn more about this forum for connecting, communicating and sharing with the larger community. I’m a retired (mostly) art teacher, visual artist, gardener and volunteer with Girls Scouts, the Shorewood Memory Cafe, as well as two art groups. I’d like to attend one of your upcoming art gatherings to get a feel for what you do – in addition to your food mission.

    Thanks, Jean

  2. This looks like something my sister and I would love to do! We love volunteering and this would be a great experience as well as a bonus with that meal for volunteers. I’ll show this to my sister and we’ll probably try to come in the next month or so. We’re pretty good at dealing with food, so maybe we can do food prep. Looking forward to it!

  3. I never heard of Milwaukee’s Tricklebee Cafe (adorable name by the way), but it sounds like a good place to support, whether it’s as a volunteer or in some other capacity. In addition to the satisfaction of giving back to the community, volunteers can get experience (and free food, which is always a plus for me). Whoever came up with this business model was clever.
