FREE BIKE WASH AND LUBE
Saturday April 27th
11am – 4pm @ Baltimore Free Farm
This Saturday Bearings Bike Project is having their LAUNCH PARTY to celebrate our shiny new home in the loving embrace of Baltimore Free Farm. To show their excitement they are having a FREE bike wash and lube party!
Bring your bike, bring your friends, and bring your sunglasses! Bearings will be holding court to wash away the salt and grime from a winter of inclement weather off your precious steed, then lube up its moving parts for you. They will have cheap grilled eats, and beverages. Maybe some other fun activities. You and your bike deserve it!

May 3rd – May 12th … 11am – 6pm
FREE EVENT! All ages welcome.
Come get your paws dirty at this 10-day long put-your-nose-to-the- grindstone-no-nonsense hide tanning event wherein we will (wet) scrape all manner of deer hides and small mammal pelts to create beautiful leathers and finished furs. Some experience needed. This will be less of a workshop and more of a group effort to gain more experience and complete projects. What better way to jump into Spring?! Folks are also welcome to come by if they just want a little look-see or to give our ambitious Tanners a welcomed break. Wear clothes that can get messy!
Useful Info about what this is all about: here
“Brain tanned leathers are made by a labor-intensive process which uses emulsified oils, often those of animal brains. They are known for their exceptional softness and their ability to be washed.” Come work for 1 day or all 10, so long as you leave your workspace cleaner than you found it!
- *Some tools will be available; bring your own animal skins.
- **Not recommended “for the faint of stomach”, fyi! You may see guts, hair, tissue, muscle, fat, blood, BRAINS.

Wednesday April 17th – a presentation and slideshow with Twin Oaks and the Communities Movement! 8pm
After 45 years Twin Oaks Community in Central VA is one of the oldest and most established intentional communities in the US, with a focus on egalitarianism, non-violence, and collectivized economics. There are many other communities, both in the US and abroad, also seeking to promote sustainability and social injustice by designing communities based on those values. This presentation will look at a collection of these communities, their strengths and challenges, and what they have to offer as models and examples.
Saturday, March 30th 12-4pm! Join us for a half-day bookmaking workshop where you’ll learn how to bind your own quartercloth, casebound journal using the best archival materials. These beautiful books are simple, elegant and durable, and are great for journaling, sketching or travel scrapbooking. In addition, once you complete the workshop, you’ll know everything you need to make larger journals or scrapbooks.
Cost: $25 All materials and tools will be provided.
