We would first like to thank everyone who has made it out to one of our Handmade Homemade markets in the past few months. With every market that we host, the crowd grows both in size as well as in diversity, and the vendors grow in numbers and creativity. It has been a very exciting and humbling experience to watch so many people inhabit this market and make it their own, and we hope to continue offering this experience. The 4th HaHo Market saw well over 200 people members and at least 25 vendors in attendance, many returning for the 2nd or 3rd time. We will continue to develop the community table as well as the alternative currencies that we are working on. Please stay tuned! The photos from the fourth market are also now online – check the side bar.
We would also like to highlight our first ever HaHo workshop, held on August 17th at Green Spaces and hosted by Arthur Brock. The topic was “Get ready for the Next economy”. The workshop was a success and we will continue to develop and offer additional workshops and discussions! If you are interested in leading a workshop please contact us.
And please help us show support for these exciting upcoming events.
