Today was Queen's Food Day at Socrates Sculpture Park.
The event was hosted by Socrates Sculpture Park, GrownNYC Greenmarket, and City Harvest and it was a phenomenal Fall treat for adults and children.
I was honored to have volunteered in this year's Queen's Food Day because I got to help at the coolest station there: #thebluebusproject.
The Blue Bus Project brings the artistic expression to the streets. Annalisa Iadicicco is the artist behind the the Blue Bus Project that promotes social and political change. Annalisa repurposes materials for her art work.

The Blue Bus was a bus that was parked around her neighborhood for months. She left a note wanting to buy and the rest is history. Opportunities always come in the form of grit.
It was a great opportunity to develop my art skills and help lots of children and their parents make flowers from vinyl records, packing bubble wrap, and beads.
All in a day's good work.
I love it when I can incorporate my daughters into volunteer events. It's one thing to teach them to participate and another one to teach them to get involved.
