This Thursday evening, May 7, the 2nd annual 5-Point Film Festival will open in Carbondale, running through Sunday, May 10. Festival organizers are featuring our School Greenhouses, and are donating a portion of festival proceeds to the Roaring Fork High School Greenhouse & Gardens project. This event has great potential to inspire the Carbondale community, as well as the whole Valley, to help with our school greenhouses. We already have one success underway, in the Yampah Mtn. HS Greenhouse dome, featured this past week in the Glenwood Post Independent.
We have agreed to provide refreshments for the four days of the festival, in the form of baked goods, such as cookies, brownies, fruit bars, etc. Estimated quantity needed: 700 – 900 items. They don’t need to be individually wrapped, a wrapped plate of cookies will be fine. So, if each baker made 40 pieces, we would need to have 20 bakers; 80 pieces per baker = 10 bakers, etc. I am freezing 30 oatmeal-plum bars today, and will make more Monday evening. If you can help, please reply to this email to let me know what you can provide. We will post drop-off instructions for midday this Thursday, May 7, on the RFHS Greenhouse blog
Danny Brown and Fat City Farms have teamed up to produce a film trailer about the School Greenhouses. You can preview a draft of the trailer: http://www.fatcityfarms.org/video/1.html
We hope everyone agrees this is a wonderful opportunity for all the food groups in the Valley to shine, and to inspire many others to join the work we are doing.
Thank you SO MUCH for your help, and your wonderful baking skills!
Drop Off Instructions: Eco Goddess Edibles owner Lisa Ruoff has two shelves in her refrigerator to store our baked items for the weekend. Her shop is at 335 Main Street in Carbondale, and her phone number is 963-7316.
