A guest post from our extraordinary President & CEO Steve von Schenk:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On Thursday, August 15, 2019, I made a second attempt at the Adirondack Great Range. For those who remember last year, my son Paul and I had planned to hike all 20+ miles in one day. We ended up needing to cut it short after eight of the 10 peaks were summitted.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This year, I was determined to finish what I did not last year: All 10 peaks. It’s been labeled one of the toughest day hikes in America, according to Backpacker Magazine. Eight of the 10 mountains in the Great Range are High Peaks, the pinnacle of which is Mount Marcy (the tallest peak in New York State). In all, completing the Great Range entails 10,000 feet of elevation gain.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For this one-day hike, we raised nearly $25,000 for Adirondack Trust’s Above & Beyond Challenge, which benefits the Addiction Medicine Program of Saratoga Hospital and its Community Health Center. All in all, over $130,000 has been raised since the Challenge’s inception.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But this particular hike was about more than the generous donations, and it was about more than giving back to the community. This hike was also deeply personal.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On October 6, 2018, my son Brian’s fiancée, Allison (Allie) King, 31, died tragically. She was a strong supporter of the Challenge, joining us on several hikes last year, and was a part of our family. Her spirit guided me as I rose at 1 a.m. the morning of the hike, and as I summitted all 10 peaks over the course of the day.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am grateful for the time that Brian and my family had with Allie, and her memory lives on.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I also thank all my friends, family, colleagues, and community members who aided in my preparation through their donations and well-wishes. Thank you for helping to keep Allie’s spirit alive, and thank you for helping a remarkable program in our community thrive.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Whether it’s a hike in the mountains, or the road to recovery, as Chinese philosopher Laozi said, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

It is simultaneously thrilling and terrifying to try something new! We hear a lot of stories at the Neighborhood Bag Project, sometimes folks haven’t touched a sewing machine in 50 years and others do it for the first time! It takes courage and seeing it time and again makes this small sustainable activity all the more amazing to be apart of🥰
Join us tomorrow from 4-7pm @audubonfarmersmarket !

I am finally releasing a 3 years long held secret: there is going to be a documentary about the Advice Tent by the brilliant @wctank ... so watch a preview of it. Link in bio.
You can also see this preview clip at the Mary L. Nohl Suitcase Exhibition Opening Reception on view at MIAD currently.
Next up: we do an advice tent at the 2020 DNC. Not sure how or where, but YES, YES, YES, it will be!
I want to thank the over 100 advisors, almost a thousand visitors and dozens of volunteers we have had over the past three years. As well as Milwaukee Fringe Festival, Woodland Pattern Book Center, Center Street Daze Festival, Bay View Bash, O, Miami Poetry Festival, Greater Milwaukee Foundation, @freesiamckee ,five interns and all our donors throughout the years!

This is a day when companies all across Buffalo come together and volunteer for local organizations who need some extra hands to carry out their mission.

Here's an update of recent activity at the Ripley community garden. Things have been uncertain in the last few weeks because our funding came to an end. It's increasingly difficult to get continuation funding, and demonstrate the need, for this sort of small community project, despite the value it brings to the people who come along. Anyway, we've now had some great news, which I'll share in another post.
...
Some of these pics were taken on the hottest July day on record, so we were glad to be in the shade!
The area around the mosaic is nearly complete, with the wall finished and bark in place. Just a bit of weeding, then planting, left to do (plant donations - shade-tolerant ground cover in this case - always welcomed!). Oh, and the tomatoes are coming on well too!

These paddles are part of a community project lead by the Vibrant Village committee (Impact 32). Each paddle was painted/designed/carved by local artists, including professional and hobby artists, local businesses, students and other community members. The paddles are a wonderful way to display the talent, culture and passion of our community. 
In a few weeks, all of the paddles will be available for auction, with the proceeds funding future projects that make our village vibrant, like our gorgeous flower baskets, the annual tree lighting event and harvest/winter decor. #visitbobcaygeon #vibrantvillage #communitystrong #bobcaygeon #kawarthalakes

Success! We are out of brochures for the Clarksville-Montgomery County African American Legacy Trail, AND we need help to have continued success. We are currently fundraising for our next print run now. We have partnered with Mt. Olive Cemetery Historical Preservation Society, whose mission is to preserve African American history and culture within Clarksville/Montgomery County. They are a 501(c)3 and donations ARE tax deductible! The people in the brochure are important to not only Clarksville but most of them made a national and/or international impact. Clarence Cameron White, Wilma Rudolph, Dr. Robert T. Burt are a few of the people honored. The Burt School Reunion takes place this fall and we are trying to have enough brochures for the alumni and family. This brochure was created by community volunteers in connection with one of our local high schools @rossviewamat and everyone gave our time, energy, and resources to make this an honored reality to people who made sacrifices in the past. We want to keep it alive. Please, Make checks payable to Mt. Olive Historical Preservation Society and in the FOR section write, CMC Legacy Trail, and your money will be applied directly to the printing of the brochures. Mail checks to Mt. Olive Cemetery Historical Preservation Society P.O. Box 352 Clarksville, TN 37041. Check out the Mt. Olive Facebook page and website. We always need volunteers and donors.

I found these two gems at our community clothing exchange on Monday night! Gotta represent the green life 😍
We hope everyone who took part enjoyed themselves. We certainly had fun! I think we will organise more in the future, perhaps seasonally so we can avoid buying new each time 🤔 What do you think?
I will update the website with event photos soon 😊

Irene, a social worker from Spain, volunteered in Zambia between February and July 2019 with the NGO Development Aid from People to People (DAPP Zambia). Zambia is one of the developing countries in the African sub-region with high child and infant mortality rates due to malnutrition, disease, poor health service delivery, complications during birth, and high illiteracy levels among mothers.

Irene worked with women from the local communities in both the areas of Gender-Based Violence and Nutrition, through the ZAMFAM and Child Aid projects respectively. In her free time, she was organising sports and psychosocial dynamics with the boys from a reformatory school nearby.

Irene's team joined CICD UK in Spring 2018, worked through the Gaia Scholarship Programme and trained in the 12-month Poverty Activist Programme to become certified Development Instructors. 
Could this be something for you as well? Do you dream of traveling, volunteering abroad and being part of the change for a better world? 🌍💪🌱 We can do this together.

DM us or drop us a comment for more info on how to start this journey, let's get talking! 👇

Legacy book launch last night was just what I needed to get out of my funk. I met Jody Ann Johnson and her colleague Doug Barra who both contributed to the book.

I shared my project and will be meeting quite a few of the attendees who are interested in collaborating with me or would like to help me. I'm so glad I went!

Attention please! We have a small announcement to make. (Long post ahead, but we promise it’s worth reading to the end!)
_
We've been doing a bit of soul searching recently and getting to the heart of what we're all about. 
_
SFP was started as a way to connect people and build communities through food. We love that food has the power to bring people together and we love seeing people sitting at our shared tables, passing plates, making friends, networking and inspiring each other.
_
Our Farmer to Table Dinners really encapsulate this and we want everyone to have a chance to experience what these nights are all about. 
_
So, in an effort to make these events more accessible for everyone we have decided to drop ticket prices to cost price - $45 per person. (Don't worry our wonderful farmers and producers are still getting paid a fair price, it's our SFP team who have decided to take a slight pay cut.)
_
We will be returning to CERES Environment Park in Spring with our next Farmer to Table Dinner on Saturday 5th of October. You can expect the same abundant restaurant quality food just with a smaller price tag (and without the goodie bag).
_
We're looking forward to seeing you there! Stay tuned as we announce our guest farmers over the coming weeks.
_
Please note, it's a good idea to get in quick, even though we have opened up extra tickets for these dinners, we know they'll be snapped up fast! Link to buy tickets in bio.

For over two months, primary school students from the Wendouree community have explored ideas of identity in specialised, photography-based, art programs. Students worked directly with professional photographers and educators such as Rebecca Nicholandos to learn a range of new skills and photographic techniques. In doing so they created a dynamic series of images called Hello Wendouree / Hello Australia, which will be on display at Stockland Wendouree Shopping Centre. BIFB proudly supports artists of all ages 💛
With thanks to our friends at Stockland Wendouree.

What do you do with all the bits and pieces after a bit of sewing? Put them in the bin and send them to landfill, no way. Instead I’ve used them to stuff a draught stopper. A very simple project that didn’t take to long. ♻️
I made an inner tube stuffed with all the bits and pieces of thread and fabric and an outer pillow slip style washable cover. ♻️
I’m very happy with the result. 💚

Sitting in our mini jungle of towering plants which exceeded our height expectations 10 times over..feeding Hudson tomatoes and reflecting on this growing season which is quickly changing over to my favorite season Fall. Excited for the change, the squash and apples and trying to take mental notes of what did well, what didn't and what to focus on for next year. We are definitely going to have a winter garden but it just isnt the same, never as lush and never as thrilling but its something. 
Our seedlings are happy, the volunteer squash is stoked, the banana transplants are alive and our chickpea experiment has done very well. Plus look at that tiny melon! 😍
What are you excited for this Fall?

Richard Glaser was scrolling through a Facebook group dedicated to his neighborhood in Rochester, NY, when he came across a photo of a crosswalk in California painted to look like a piano keyboard. Under it was a note: “Why don’t we have this?”
+
As a community activist and entrepreneur, Glaser is “fundamentally opposed to relying on government.” While most crosswalk art across the country is a public project, he thought he could make Rochester’s piano keys happen in a grassroots way.
+
He recruited local artist Shawn Dunwoody, and together they approached people from the Rochester community and asked around: “Want to paint with us on Sunday? No experience required.”
+
On the morning of June 23, 75 people showed up right in front of the University of Rochester’s Eastman School of Music to paint four enormous keyboards. And the result looks pretty stunning to me.

This is a time where the noise in the centre is reduced as much as possible to help those living with autism to have an enjoyable shopping experience 💜💜⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #quiethour #autism #autistic #brilliantburnley #burnley #autismchampions #autismawareness #charterwalk #love #like #follow #burnleycommunity #communityproject #nationalautiamawareness #heroes #peaceful #quiet #happy #champions #support

Great to be back in the rehearsal space with these two lovely humans. 'Our Street' is going to be AMAZING touring around local community centers. Thank you to The Bradford Playhouse for putting us up. Lots of laughter already which is how it should be in a rehearsal space. Bring on the next one and thanks for having me back Martin Sherlock-Knowles. It's always nice to return to something that brought you such fond moments. 
P.S - Dominic Scott, you're dancing and histerical squeeking gets more hilarious each time you do it. Missed this! 💕💕 #actors #actorslife #theatre #ourstreet #project #nextrole #rehearsals #inspire #create #multirolling #linelearning #givingback #communityproject #sponsorship #fund #everyonedeservesART #artists #thisgirlcan #tour #picoftheday #instagood #tuesvibe #like4likes #follow4followback #linelearning #changelifes #makeadifference #QOTD #peace
