'Birdhouse Bash' still onDeliver birdhouse creations for auction by May 2
Daydreamz project and Community Gardeners are still looking for local youth and adults to deliver birdhouses for the silent auction to benefit the Green Thumb Community Garden. Despite being rained-out at Saturdays’ drop-off site, birdhouses are slated to be on display in businesses along Main Street until the May 11 event. To have a birdhouse creation included in the Art After Dark exhibition, drop it off at the Herren House Bed & Breakfast gazebo on East Street by Thursday May 2. Please leave registration information about the artist or group, birdhouse “name., and suggested opening bid with your birdhouse. To arrange a drop-off, or for more information, call Daydreamz project at 476-4231.
The Birdhouse Bash is the first annual celebration of Spring & Creativity, hosted by the Green Thumb Community Garden & Daydreamz project. The gardeners wish to invite the community, as well as the birds, back to the garden behind the Old Armory on Boundary Street in Frog Level of Waynesville. Birdhouse submissions must be made of weather resistant, nontoxic permanent materials; please no cardboard, fiberboard, glue, hot glue, toxic paints or finishes. FolkArt style is welcome, as part of our local heritage.
Birdhouses are on display at supporting businesses on Main Street of Waynesville to May 9. Silent bidding will take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 11, during The Whole Bloomin’ Thing Festival in Frog Level. The winning bids will be selected at 2:30 p.m., when donations will be accepted and birdhouses may be taken to their new home or garden. For information, contact Daydreamz project at 476-4231.
