Adobe Brick Making at the Community Garden at Holy Nativity, May 2015

This past Saturday, we had LOTS of fun making adobe bricks at the Community Garden.

Kids, both small and tall, got to experience squishy-squashy mud.  It is so tactile and cool and smooth, and once you start, you just can’t get enough of it!

We were striving to make half of the 288 bricks we need for the Westchester Community Oven, and we exceeded our goal.  Last Saturday we made 151 bricks before we ran short of materials.

If you missed the fun last week, we’ll be making the remaining bricks this coming Saturday, May 16, from 9am-1pm.  It’s a free workshop, so come on over!
