Goddesses in the Park, the Garden and All About Town
Just a last minute confirmation that yoga (at 10 a.m.), followed by hula hooping will take place at Lincoln Park tomorrow morning for all gods and goddesses who are interested. Suggested donation is $10, but come on out in any event on this or any Saturday in the future. The teacher plans to eventually expand the days and times, and I'll post an update when she does. I don't think even the hooping regulars from a year ago know about tomorrow, so it's your chance to get in on the ground floor.
Speaking of the ground floor, the photo above is the Goddess of Garey Avenue posing on the grounds of my new backyard garden. Okay, so we haven't planted any seeds yet, but doesn't it look like the real deal. My husband and I have been talking about starting a garden forever, read all the books, but it was still intimidating until I hired my very own gardening coach, The Goddess of Garey Avenue, to hold our hand through the process. Ultimately, I hope the fruits of our labor will help us to eat better, be more independent and save money. If you too are in need of a gardening coach to finally get the garden you crave, drop me a line and I can put you in touch with that other Goddess in Pomona. And yes, GOGA's rates are very reasonable.
I am also grateful to Marybeth (the green goddess above) and Todd (former Lincoln Park hoola hoopers) over at Claremont Food Not Lawns for holding their annual Seed Exchange a couple weeks ago. Goddess of Garey Avenue and I got lots of good stuff there and will be putting some seeds in the ground next weekend. Then, at long last, I will officially be living up to my namesake.
Other Pomona goings on this weekend where you might see a Goddess or two? Two Farmer's Markets downtown: one in the morning at Garey and Pearl; the other at night on Second Street as part of the Art WAlk.
