BUGS artists & entrepreneurs have been getting ready for the Farmers Market! We have been learning to make duct tape purses and wallets and have been hard at work sewing dream pillows and filling them with flax seed and dried lavender from the BUGS garden. Dream pillows and duct tape wallets will be available for purchase at Saturday's market!

Getting dirty at CJR

B.U.G.S. dug deep in the gardens at Commodore John Rogers on a warm day. No child was left inside.... as we weeded and plowed the beds. Many things were found: worms, bugs, nests, and soil!
