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!
