May in Review
We had a great time in May! In the mornings we continued to learn about upcycling with Alicia,  we worked on our writing skills, writing a cookbook with Terri, we delivered Pentangle posters, cooked with Sarah, weaved with Leslie, we made seed balls with Emily Donaldson from Cultivating action, and did our first two hikes on the Northern Rail Trail.
Mid-day we made pottery with Fiona, visited Billings Farm, had wacky science class  with Anthea, sang with Kerry, had band class with Mark and we gardened with Martha and did fitness with Bari.
In the afternoons we practiced for our upcoming musical, did yoga with Annie, Tita and Lalita,
 we made gorgeous flower arrangements with Ellen Snyder and did art with Jools and Mary. We also read books with Pam Pickett, Bettyanne McGuire, Phil Swanson and Phyllis Bulmer.

The Zack's Place/Spark! Outing Club is Launched!
Through a generous grant from TransCanada Zack's Place and Spark! have formed an outing club. We are excited about many opportunities but our first goal is to hike the Rail Trail from Andover NH to Spark! a week at a time. As we hike we are greening up. We completed our first two hikes in May starting at Plains road in Andover, NH and hiking all the way to Eagle Pond Rd. a total of 6.4 miles. Our next hike is Wednesday the 3rd of June at 11AM.  We invite the community to join us in this ambitious goal of hiking all the way to Lebanon. Check our website and calendar or click here for information on when and where to join!
Debbie walked 2 miles! We cheered her on and are so proud!
We have had gorgeous weather so far.
