The New Playhouse is Coming!!!

WSB PlayhouseThat’s right! This Sunday, April 14th, WSB will host a community raising of our new playhouse built by WSB alumnus Ben Gallagher. The playhouse will be in the black giant footprint by the green dragon slide. Come by anytime between 9am & 6pm, and bring along a picnic lunch with enough to share and we’ll have a picnic potluck!
DSCN5338Today, I picked up 8 tires (donated by Hampden Tires) which will be used to make an earthship foundation. Over the years, I’ve lived and worked on earthships in New Mexico and Ohio — they’re basically self-sustaining houses made of tires. (You can follow the link above to learn about earthships, and/or click on the photo to the left to read about my time in Ohio.) Myself, with the help of students and a few friends, will be pounding those tires with earth on Thursday and turning them into 300 pound bricks which the playhouse will rest on. By all means, if you see me out there, and feel like swinging a sledge hammer around, come by and lend a hand.
In other news, I have taken to the streets with our Clean Currents campaign and dropped off flyers in all of my neighbors’ mail-slots. If you’d like to do the same, message me (at manderson@twsb.org), and I’ll leave some for you at the front desk. If you’re making the change, please do so before April 30th and mention WSB. Thanks for reading!
