SPECIAL EVENTS AT MARKET
"I am a 26 y.o. artist based in Chapel Hill, NC. My art form of choice is balanced-rock sculpture. All of my sculptures are comprised solely of rocks: there is no glue, wire or rods. Because of this, the sculptures are always temporary: they last anywhere from a few seconds to a few days.

If you like what you see, please consider making a purchase! In addition to prints and posters, you can purchase tote bags, mugs and more! Just click on one of the initial purchase options for any particular photo and scroll down to see more.

I am also available for personal lessons, distanced performances and group demonstrations (contact me at thetangardner@gmail.com to discuss details) If you would like to make a direct contribution, my Venmo username is @Mara_Gardner17. Thank you!"

"Leaving your leaves is one way to change some of the forces at work behind the twin crises of climate change and loss of biodiversity. Some direct impact and benefits to leaving your leaves includes more beneficial insects including pollinators and fireflies, less stormwater runoff, healthier soil and trees, and less air and noise pollution."

Fruchtenicht Honey
Honey bees and humans are the only animals who direct one of their fellows to a distant location by means of symbols. If you are told to deliver a package to 100 Clover St. in Cloverdale, you may be shown a map of the road to Cloverdale or get verbal instructions to follow Highway 27 and that the house is in the SW of Cloverdale. You drive there, then (your GPS is on the fritz) you hunt around until you find a sign for Clover St. then follow the house numbers to 100. Voila!

A honey bee forager returning with a rich load will pass it to a receiver bee and then attempt to recruit her fellows to El Dorado with the famed bee waggle dance. She indicates the direction by wagging her abdomen and dancing in a straight line at an angle to vertical which mimics the angle of the target to the position of the sun, then loops back and repeats. The vigor of the dance conveys her opinion of the source’s value, and its duration the distance. As she dances, her body is being stroked by potential recruits who pick up the scent of the nectar and may receive a droplet.  

Much like our driver, the recruit doesn’t hit right on the spot. There is an error factor in the angle of maybe 10º which diminishes the farther the travel but a distance error which increases with distance. One study found new recruits landing within 25 m of a target 300 m away. Then the bee, like our driver, must hunt around searching with her sensitive antennae for the odor of the nectar, and use her sight to narrow down the search to flowers. 

Foragers returning with rich loads are unloaded by receiver bees within perhaps 40 seconds and will then dance. Foragers returning with inferior loads (nectar can vary from 10% to 70% sugar) may spend several minutes before a receiver bee will take her watered down crap. She doesn’t dance. 

A finding from a recent study: not all foragers are the same. There are Hero of the Soviet Union bees who may make ten or more trips a day and slackers who may make one. The lazy bees may be just born bad (queens mate with up to 20 drones so there is genetic variation in her daughters) or they may be impaired by viruses or pesticide exposure. Think of the octogenarian or someone with the flu searching for 100 Clover St. They might just stay home.

Terra Clotha
Even though some of us are still wearing shorts and T-shirts, it is cool enough these days for the rest of us to be wearing our Durham Hoodie. Warm, colorful, stylish, and in touch with the city. Also available on special order. We also have long-sleeved T-shirts for children and adults. AND BY THE WAY, we are happy to do special holiday orders. Colors, sizes, designs to your specifications. And like many others in this crazy world, some of the shirt sizes, dye colors, silkscreen ink, left-handed smokeshifters, etc., that we need to make that happen are sitting in ships off the California coast waiting to be unloaded. Because even though we deal with domestic companies, some of the supplies our suppliers need have to come from far-off places, and thus, we are subject to some of the breaks in the global supply chain that everyone else has do deal with. Which is a long way of saying that you should get your order in early.

Wild Scallions
Wild Scallions Farm will be at market with some great fall produce including: potatoes, butternut squash, pumpkins, bok choy, turnips, daikon radish, peppers, our last onions and a bit more.  And the fall flush of dahlias are here! We'll have plenty of lovely flower bouquets and bunches of fresh eucalyptus. 

All our produce is sustainably grown for healthful foods from healthy fields!

Looking forward to seeing everyone!
