Busy Busy Busy


We were out relatively late celebrating an important family birthday last night, so I’m a bit slow getting going this morning. A shoutout to the good folks at Cured for a lovely evening. 

This weekend you have some good choices for getting out and about.

Pop-up market at Frank’s:

They are donating the proceeds from the vendor registration fees to Columbia Community Care and will have a bin onsite for non perishable food donations as well.

The Holiday Craft Fair returns to Historic Oakland. Admission is free but they are doing registration through Eventbrite. Get free tickets here.

Over at Freetown Farm the Community Ecology Institute is presenting a Watershed Care Fair on Saturday from 2 to 4 pm:

Join us at Freetown Farm to learn about how we can all steward the health of our local watersheds. You will be able to walk through our brand-new swale and bioretention pond areas, made possible by grants from the Chesapeake Bay Trust, to "follow the raindrop" on how community stormwater moves onto and through our property and see how it now has the chance to slow down, spread out, and soak into the ground rather than being rushed along to the Middle Patuxent River. Participants will help us spread the seeds for a perennial native wildflower meadow in this area and be able to visit with a variety of community partners (University of Maryland, Watershed Stewards Academy, Howard County Office of Community Sustainability, Howard EcoWorks and more!) who will share activities and information about how you can support watershed health from your home and neighborhood and why this is so important. 

Sessions are at 2 and 3, free registration is here.

Last week was the final Saturday Market at Clarksville Commons for the season but mark your calendar for their Thanksgiving market on November 20th.

Reader Update:

From the Howard County Office of Transportation: E-scooter Demo Day at the Lakefront with Spin. Come on down, check them out, learn more and ask questions of both Spin and County staff before the scooter program launches in 2022. BYOH (Bring Your Own Helmet), please! More info:

Leaning towards December…

This is your first official “heads up!” for some cool local concerts: on December 4th, the return of the WBALConcert for Kids at Oakland Mills High School, and a new event on December 11th, The Baltimore Choral Arts Society presents Christmas for Kids and the Miraculous Magical Balloon at The Chrysalis, Merriweather Park at Symphony Woods.

Have a great Friday! If there’s anything else going on this weekend that I have missed, let me know and I will add it in.
