Post image for new farmer’s market in philly

philly is getting a new farmer’s market, and it looks like a good one!

the weekly market starts tomorrow will take place every saturday at the piazza at schmidts between 10am and 2pm. supposedly this will be the largest farmer’s market in the city, with a huge variety of seasonal vegetables, fruits and meat from more than 20 farmers. plus each vendor meets one or more of the following criteria: local, sustainably grown, ethically raised, free range, hormone free, pesticide free, organic, raw and/or grass fed. nice!

Post image for our community wall

our visual display team just recently installed a new community wall here in building 15, and we have a cool time lapse video of them creating it –  they put a lot of hard work into it, and even dyed the fabric outside in the rain!

and here is the finished product:

very warm and cheerful :)

lennon wall

when i first saw the photos from our new catalog, i was immediately curious about the graffiti covered wall.  i did a little research and found out that it was named the lennon wall following the death of john lennon in 1980.  since then it has been covered with graffiti pertaining to lennon and his lyrics, as well as notions of peace.  during the period of communist rule in the late 1980’s in prague, western music by artists like lennon was banned. young people would write their grievances on this wall, eventually leading to a clash between them and police on the nearby charles bridge. this movement was referred to by the czech authorities as “lennonism.”

despite attempts to repaint the wall, the graffiti kept coming back and is now tolerated… right on.

Post image for haiti

our hearts go out to all the victims of the devastation in haiti.

free people will be making a donation to american red cross to help communities affected by the earthquake.

Zola -Jan 15, 2010, 6:27PM
I think that it is great that people are donating to the country but... i also think that it is sad that it took such a horrible NATURAL disaster to make the world actually pay attestation to the UNNATURAL atrocities that have occurring within the country for a ridicules amount of time..it is also even sadder that the majority of these things are still going unnoticed.. -just my 2 sense
