A call has been made for local artists, youth, elders and adults to create birdhouses for a silent auction to benefit the Green Thumb Community Garden behind the Old Armory on Boundary Street, in Frog Level, of Waynesville. The community gardeners wish to celebrate spring, the abundance of creativity in the community, as well as the birds that bring life to the garden. FolkArt style is welcome, as part of the local heritage.
Submissions must be made of weather-resistant permanent materials; do not use cardboard, fiberboard, glue, hot glue or temporary paints. Deliver completed birdhouses April 27 to the MOM’s Music Festival at Herren House Bed & Breakfast, on East Street. Also, look for creative community opportunities to decorate a birdhouse at Claymate’s in Hazelwood, or at the MOM’s Music Fest.
Birdhouses will be on display at supporting businesses on Main Street of Waynesville from April 28 to May 9. Self-guided garden tours will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 11, in the community garden behind the Old Armory, during The Whole Bloomin’ Thing Festival in Frog Level and Home Expo at the armory.

The silent auction winners will be selected at 2:30 p.m.May 11, when birdhouses may be purchased and taken to their new home or garden. For more information, contact the Daydreamz project at 476-4231.
