Free Make & Creates at Delmar Sunday Markets

 

ReFuseOKC is now happy to be a partner in sponsorship for the  Delmar Sunday Market with RoundAbout's neighbors in the Farmers Market District! We'll be facilitating a FREE ALL AGES MAKE & CREATES utilizing and upcycling donated materials for folks to learn and design each Sunday until the end of November 2017!

Here's some more info on the Delmar Sunday Market

A new, open air farmers market is in development and set to take place Sundays 10 am-2pm, May through November, at Delmar Gardens in the Farmer’s Market District. The market is at the center of a vast food desert and on the edge of neighborhoods that struggle to afford basic nutrition. To tackle this issue, we will be accepting SNAP benefits and will target low-income neighborhoods and invite them to shop at our market. The market will be open to all. We hope to find commonality through local food among people of diverse backgrounds. Together we’ll create an environment centered around nutritious, local food awareness, and education.

Week 2 TradeShare & ReFuse Summer Camp at the OKC Farmers Market District

Week 2 TradeShare & ReFuse Summer Camp at the OKC Farmers Market District

  • Google Calendar ICS

TradeShare is partnering with ReFuse OKC and the OKC Farmers Market District to host a 2 week Summer Camp Program June 19th-24th and July 24th-29th, 2017. 

TradeShare camp incorporates the local community by partnering with the Farmers Market vendors and businesses that focus on sustainable arts, gardening, cooking, and community action. 

Each day campers help facilitate making lunch and snacks for themselves alongside local vendors and chefs with locally sourced foods with an invitational brunch for family and friends on Saturday from the OSU/OKC Farmer's Market.

Campers and their families are also invited to take the Oklahoma River Cruise and visit the Wheeler Ferris Wheel as a part of the Summer Camp experience.

Each week is imbued with activities and guests exploring: Theatre, Inquiry Based Learning, Media & Communication, Upcycled Sewing with Howlpop, Gardening and Composting, Wildcrafting with Clarissa Sharp, Cooking with Katy Gartz and Vuong Nguyen, Dance with Joseph Misner, Sports with Balthazar Hensley from BLOW and Paul Maupin, Film with Nicole Emmons-Willis, Science with Joey Rodman and Michael Centola, Comedy with James Nghiem & Music with Jon Mooneyham/Sun Riah/Todd Jackson/Levi Watson and Circus Performers Chase Vegas/Cassidy Queerface/Ooops the Clown to Local Farmers Ian Fuller and Food Producers with Visual Artists: Kristopher Kanaly/Klair Larason/Betty Refour/Eric Piper/Erin Latham/Romy Owens/Narciso Argüelles/Julie Yang/Rick Sinnett/Kjelshus Collins/Tony Westlund and Community Leaders like Lindsey Kanaly.  Promoting learning and problem solving skills from a Whole Maker Perspective.

Guests joining the TradeShare camp schedule are invited to share their work with the campers leaving an impression of mentorship that lasts a lifetime.

 It is so impactful for the kids to meet artists and community leaders in person as you most likely know. TradeShare summer camp programming is not traditional to a classroom setting. The camp programming is modeled more after a mix between a live museum atmosphere and a drop in center. Campers are offered multiple areas set up with access to project materials and guests covering visual arts, science, gardening, and cooking techniques. Sometimes guests just drop in and work in one of the project areas with the campers, and sometimes they drop in and the campers invited to interact with the guests' "show and tell", demo, or performance.

60% of campers are from Scholarships and 40% are paying campers. All proceeds go to supplies, field trip costs and to the non profit ReFuseOkc which donates upcycled materials to teachers, artists, and students.
