Chico Tree Advocates were helped by Daisies planting trees! Daisies (Junior Girl Scouts) are so cute! They dug the holes,
played in the dirt, helped spread out the wood chips and made our day! It is so encouraging to see the energy of these girls outside planting trees. Thanks to all the parents and the Troop Leader for a wonderful day. We planted a Valley Oak on 3rd Avenue and a Sycamore and Tulip tree on Navarro Dr. Thanks again to all the participants!

Claudia, President of the CSU Chico Tiny House Club helped set up, table, and pack up, this Saturday. And, boy, it was a good thing! We were only able to table for Simplicity Village for about an hour or two before it started raining. First time I've ever been run out of the Farmers' Market by the rain. 😀 Books and rain...not a good combo. But the people we got to talk to signed up to volunteer and they were so fired up about a tiny home village that it inspired us!

We had a fun and effective day at the Farmers Market. Twelve new volunteer sign-ups to help Simplicity Village become a reality; More donations; Great conversations, it was an encouraging outing. Met a CSU Chico Prof. who asked if I could make a Simplicity Village presentation to his class! That will be a great opportunity to recruit more members for our construction team of the CSU Chico Tiny House Club. Lots of people checking out our Simplicity Village exhibit. Handed out a few Pancakes for Peace quarter sheets. The band "Upstairs Neighbors" made some great music next door. It was a good day.

We introduced a new Simplicity Village Peace Panel today. A more simple and punchy Panel for walking traffic. With three Panels on the homeless issue we are getting focused. The musician next to me even played "Gimmie Shelter" by the Stones. That was great! And we got eleven new sign-ups from people who want to help Simplicity Village come to fruition! And we started accepting donations! It was a good day.
The Women's Club was a bustle of environmentalists, appetizers and music. We were there promoting Chico Tree Advocates, (CTA). Thanks to all who contributed. We got ten more volunteer sign-ups for CTA! And we finally lined up some video help for Career Builders! It was a fun time.
