I’ve gone to the farmers market a few times, but I never took the time to see the beauty of it. Today, I went with Lucia, one of my fellow coworkers to help setup. Once we set up CHEER’s tent, we decided to take a walk around the market. I looked around and realized, “Wow, why haven’t I explored here?” The scene was just full of color, from the tables to the tents, an even the chalk art the kids made. This one young artist was there and they made this beautiful drawing with chalk that the kids played with! I just had to capture a picture of it.
Along with admiring the color-filled scene, we met with an organization that works with CHEER, Audubon Naturalist Society (ANS). ANS helps communicate to the community the need to protect our environment. One of the people there, Greg showed me how they catch insects that live in the creeks and waters. He let me try their app, Creek Critters, which they developed themselves! I found it extremely interesting how many things you could find in the waters.
