Seen & Heard: Greenmarket Textile Lab

textile lab 1••• From the Tribeca Greenmarket: “Laura Sansone’s Textile Lab, a favorite last year, returns to the Tribeca Greenmarket with the Mending Project. Bring your old sweaters, socks, shirts, pants, and more to mend and re-purpose using needle-felting and sewing methods with regionally sourced, naturally dyed materials from producers, including: 3 Corner Field Farm, Catskill Merino, Hudson Valley Sheep & Wool Co., and Meyer & Sons Leather Tannery.” This Saturday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.; free. (Raindate: Aug. 24.)

••• I posted the answer to last week’s Where in Tribeca…? (right); click the link to find out. Does anyone know what language that is? Cambodian/Khmer?

••• Good news from the Battery Urban Farm at Battery Park: “The Farm is providing a share of our weekly produce to God’s Love We Deliver, whose mission is to ‘improve the health and well-being of men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other serious illnesses by alleviating hunger and malnutrition.’ So far we have harvested more than 200 pounds of beets, cucumbers, eggplants, kale, lettuce, radishes, turnips, and chard, all of which are home-delivered (along with easy-to-follow, healthy, delicious recipes) to clients in the HIV/AIDS Grocery Bag program.”

••• I went to Saleya for lunch yesterday, and maybe I just hadn’t been on that block in a while, but the restaurant has pretty outdoor seating.

  1. I believe the language on the “where in Tribeca” photo is Thai.
