Walkable Wonders: The Poignon Project and Healing Vines

We’re nearing the end of June, and summer is well and truly here (in case the recent heat wave didn’t convince you!). When I was growing up, one of my favorite summer pastimes was spending the afternoons crafting and drawing with my grandma, Betty Lucretia Stultz. My grandma is a very cool person – the only daughter of one of the Depression-era Junior Home Kids, she earned a full ride to art school when she graduated high school, and still draws and paints today. She always made the time to keep me engaged and art-ing around. The organizations I’m targeting today are some that I know she’ll enjoy as much as I do!
