Pomegranate Carve-A-Thon

The Dig Project at Factoria with Pomegranate Center: Part 2
The Design Comes Together and the Carve-A-Thon
Part 1 described in a blog entry here 

Eggs provided by Newport Hills hens

Midsummer 2011:   A full day of design, drawings and site walking planned.  I made a fresh frittata  with locally grown Newport Hills eggs, courtesy of neighbor Michelle Hilhorst's hens.  On to the drawings provided by Pomegranate staff and our volunteers, "Space Rangers" all!

Stone seating layout

There was even a model of the amphitheatre in order to better visualize the seating and the roof over the stage

Much listening and presenting of ideas going on here

The site is walked over and over again:  fortunately the sun came out!

Then there was something called a "Carve-A-Thon", one of Pomegranate's unique ways of raising funds.  Carved panels are carved, assembled and painted at the Pomegranate Center,  all by us volunteers, and then sold off to the highest bidders!

Finally, the panels are hand-stained and delivered to their new owners
