Fresh City Life My Branch taught me how to make a terrarium!
Last week I attended a Fresh City Life My Branch class at Ross-Cherry Creek, and learned how to make a terrarium! Terrariums are in the midst of a huge comeback, and these tiny eco-systems are popping upeverywhere. We learned about what ingredients make a successful terrarium, and then designed our own to take home. It was so fun and easy, you can make a terrarium in almost any container.

This December the families of Denver were able to participate in an exciting LEGO contest. Last year the contest took place at the Schlessman Family Branch in December and January, and this year it was expanded to six branches, as part of the Fresh City Life My Branch program. Hopefully next year even more branches will be able to participate!
The theme for 2012 was “Supersonic World – 2012 and Beyond!” and each participant was asked to create an original scene (no LEGO sets) inspired by this futuristic theme. There were categories for adults, teens, children, and a family category, and each entry had to fit in a shoebox sized space. There were 14 total entries from Bear Valley, University Hills, Smiley, and the Schlessman libraries and the judging took place on January 14th at the Bear Valley Branch Library.
Whether you're a lover of love or a conscientious objector, Bette Davis' 1941 confection The Great Lie will have you on the edge of your seat -- it's a love thriller. The twists and turns on the way to the ending (happy for some, stoic for others) are custom made for two of Hollywood's notorious scenery-chewers: Bette Davis and Mary Astor.
Last night was pretty fantastic here at Fresh City Life. We rechristened our partnership with Curious Theatre Company through Voices From the Front Lines -- a staged reading of works written by military veterans of contemporary wars. Several of the pieces had been written through a special program sponsored by Lighthouse Writers Workshop. There were tears and even laughter -- and our audience was rapt!
