Bound by Beauty had a wonderful time at the Unity Day Fair in Miami Shores. Our booth featured a Monarch tower bedecked with Monarch chrysalises, and we even watched a couple of caterpillars pupate, which is always a thrilling sight. Jill Leslie captured the remarkable process with her cell phone.
Bound by Beauty also had on hand a Pollinator Pledge, which a number of fair goers signed to protect our precious pollinators from the widespread use of pesticides. Those who signed got a butterfly named for them on our wall.
We offered a petition in support of a farmers' market in Miami Shores, and another in support of a ban on pesticides in public spaces. There was also a signup sheet for neighbors who are interested in participating in the creation of a community butterfly/healing garden at the Miami Shores Community Church. Many thanks to all who signed!
Most of all, we enjoyed meeting our neighbors on a beautiful day in South Florida. Thank you Jen, Susan, Wendy, Jill, Doug, Roly, Ed, Salomon, Mike, Pete for setting up an awesome booth and being part of this lovely and meaningful day.
