Trees For Kids

The Peace Panel Project was pitching “trees for kids” at the Farmer's Market this last Saturday. Underneath the old magnolia tree we introduced people to Better World Shopping Guide, Project Censored, Ruses for War, Nonviolent Communication and Chico Tree Advocates. We sold some books and handed out brochures. We even sold a Chico Peace & Justice Center raffle ticket for a Mexican Getaway, for the drawing at the Annual Dinner October 16. The highlight of the day was when my daughter, Camille, came by with mini cup cakes for peace. The booth was a lot more popular as long as they lasted.

Farmer's Market 8-8-15

We had a good day at the Farmer's Market.  Sold some books, signed up some Tree  Advocate volunteers and were serenaded by some great musicians.  We featured Chico Tree Advocates (and handed out Annie B quarter sheets) Non Violent Communication,  Ruses for War, and Better World Shopping Guide.  Inspired some activism.

Chico Tree Advocates at the Farmer's Market 8-1-15

The Peace Panel Project featured Chico Tree Advocates (CTA), at the Farmer's Market, to launch our Annie B's fund raising drive, today with a new graphic.  Other Panels we exhibited included "Housing Saves Lives",  "Ruses for War", "Better World Shopping Guide" and "Project Censored".  We lined up two new Crew Leaders for CTA Fall planting, sold a couple of books and were serenaded by Brenda's harp music.   We got interviewed by a local independent TV reporter and connected with many new people.  It was a good day.

The Peace Panel Project joins the Quaker Peace Vigil in S.F.

My daughter, Camille, and I brought the Peace Panel Project's "essential sequential five" Panels to the Quaker Peace Vigil in San Francisco last Thursday.  If you are ever in the City you can join in too.  Every Thursday from Noon to 1 pm at 400 Golden Gate Avenue in front of the Federal Building the local Quakers make a stand for peace.

Farmer's Market Exhibit Saturday, 7/11/15

We had a good exhibit at the Saturday Farmer's Market.  Got our old spot back under the old Magnolia Tree, after checking in with the Management.  I have made a lot of Peace Panels  (74 - 2' x 4").   I have exhibited as many as 36 Panels on 12 easels at a time.  And then it occurred to me, people don't have the time for that big of
 an exhibit.  I have Panels that grapple with big world issues.  People are already frustrated just with the challenges of their own life.  So now I am re-inventing the Peace Panel Project: Just six Panels on two easels and only local issues that people can easily plug into.  Today we featured the "Housing Saves Lives & Money" and "Chico Tree Advocates" Panels.  I'm getting a much better response.
