Earth was overwhelming, there was a march for science (169 people), bicycle promotion, recycling, senior olympics, information booths and plant sales in the park and a new mural in the big ditch depicting our own homegrown disaster and my sewer backed up jut to remind us how much precious drinking water we flush.

Volunteers came out to work the new mural in the big ditch behind the Food Co-op and Diane's Restaurant. The mural tells the story of the great flood that turned Main Street into deep ditch it is today and the homes and businesses it destroyed.

Above shows the stumps that were left as the oak forests were cut down to feed the smelters which, along with over grazing, set the stage for the life changing event.

Saturday April 29 from 10 am to 2, the public is again invited to help with the mural from cutting and decorating tiles to cementing them to the wall. Note in the 1st photo the white line across the top of the wall, these are tiles with words explaining the food event.
