Get inspired to work together in your community with joy and kindness — and to find practical ways to get involved.  Help create a movement in DC to build the civic culture we all need to elect better leaders, enact better policies, and weave a civic fabric of empathy, hope and wisdom!

Learn about or volunteer with nearly 40 nonprofit organizations – ranging from tutoring and mentoring, to food equity, to civic and economic justice organizations. Learn about the critical issues facing our community and the work that needs to be done to build a safer, more equitable, and more compassionate DC.

Enjoy the community, too: Picnic under the trees, visit the Kids Zone to get your face painted (no matter what your age), join the “Moving Mountains” Improv workshop, participate in free yoga or meditation activity, learn about nature and the park’s history on the Park Walk … and much more.

CivicFest partners with Heal & Release DC, led by DeepJust and Aphrosoul Lukumi.  Heal & Release combines wellness activities such as reiki, yoga, and qigong (tai chi) with “an eclectic blend of deep metaphysical alternative dance music to feed the soul.” As Aphrosoul put it, quoting Michael Brody, ‘If we can dance together, we can live together.” DCTMI hopes this shared experience will support our long-term goal of getting people to work together across class, race, and ideology to make a better world.

Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Market – Saturday, July 27, 2019

Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Market – July 27, 2019

Mount Pleasant St Plaza at 17th & Lamont – 9a-1p

Dear Friends of the Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Market:  Another delightful morning, sunny, not too hot, moderate humidity, a great start to the weekend, see you at the Market.

New Vendor!  Three Part Harmony Blooms – see below.

No plastic – Please bring your own reusable bags for shopping & produce bagging, and reusable containers if you bring compost.

Seasonal Recipe: Easy Peach Jam:

Peaches are in season!  Grab some local peaches at your nearest market and try out these easy to make preserves that can go on top of anything from toast to biscuits.  This is also the perfect recipe to make use of any overripe or bruised peaches.

Ingredients:

3 1/2 pounds peaches (1 lb = 3 to 4 medium peaches)

2 1/2 cups sugar 

Juice from one lemon (Lemon juice is naturally high in pectin and helps the jam set.)

Instructions:

Crush chopped peaches in the bottom of a large saucepan and set pan over medium-low heat. Bring to a low boil, and cook for about 20 minutes or until peaches become liquid.  On low heat add sugar, and gradually stir in lemon juice until mixture thickens.  Remove from heat after 1 minute, let cool, and transfer to sterilized jars.

Market Events:

Bike Clinic –  No clinic today, non bike related injury will keep Aaron away for a couple of weeks.  But they are always looking for more people who want to help others with their bike maintenance, stop by and talk to us at the Market table.

Music:

9a-11a –  Elena Lacayo – a singer-songwriter originally from Managua, Nicaragua. Having also grown up in the US Lacayo identifies herself as both American and Nicaraguan and her music reflects this identity as a melding of Latino and American influences. She is the lead for of Elena & Los Fulanos, a bilingual folk rock band based in Washington, DC. More information at elenalosfulanos.com

11a-1p – The Market Band – an Americana Roots band that plays a wide range of music including country, bluegrass, pop, folk, rock, and soul influenced music as well as originals. We hope that our music provides food for the soul! Americana / Folk / Country www.reverbnation.com/themarketband4

DC Tutoring & Mentoring – promoting CivicFest on Aug 3rd at Meridian Hill Park and recruiting volunteer tutors & mentors for the fall school term.

Produce Plus – Eligible customers can pick up Produce Plus checks at participating DC farmers’ markets, and spend those checks on fresh fruits and vegetable with approved market vendors. 

Compost – Drop off your veggie kitchen compostables in the bin at the Market table.  https://compostcab.com/  The Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Market is looking for some assistance with compost collection on Saturdays.  Mainly with compost bin transportation, so a vehicle, or bike trailer, etc, would be useful.  Helping in other ways with the Market’s compost collection efforts is also appreciated.  MtPFM Compost Commanders can help save the world, one banana peel at time….  Contact: MtPFarmersMarket@gmail.com or stop by the Market.

Friends of the Mount Pleasant Library will have cookbooks for sale on the Plaza.  Plus their weekly Saturday sale at the Library, 11a-2p. dclibraryfriends.org/mtpleasant/   facebook.com/MountPleasantLibraryFriends/
