The West End farmers market kicked off Sunday at the Wrens Nest. It was another great opportunity to meet and chat with neighbors while purchasing fresh products and supporting local businesses providing locally grown food and handmade original items.
The Wrens Nest is a perfect location for the market, providing shade, ample parking and even background effects of a goat eating and clearing poison ivy- I felt at peace,and in no rush to get home and study ( which was on my to-do list all week!). I sampled spicy Kale, Arugula, Mint…why does the mint at my house not grow? Of course the vendor provided tips for my own home garden.
There were a few families I helped purchase in our community laughing and joking…. What a rewarding feeling seeing them bond and discuss how good the Historic home tour and concert was the night before! Amazing how selling Real Estate is more than..selling Real Estate.
I’m very proud of the activities, events and community socials taking place in the West End of Atlanta.
30310 is offering much more than affordable housing…Make an effort to attend an event and see for yourself!
Firstly, OWEN is out. This issue demonstrates how vibrant a community West End will be this weekend. There are activities from Friday through Sunday, so please take in as many of the events as possible. Take lots of pictures.
Secondly, we need a host for a musician performing at venues in the neighborhood this weekend.
Many of us have opened our homes to family/friends who were visiting from out of town. These visitors loved our walkable neighborhood where they could stroll to two house museums, AUC center, several vegan restaurants, several banks, and MARTA access. With all that West End/ Westview has to offer, why would anyone stay downtown on a visit to Atlanta?
West End is hosting a very special visitor, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson (legendary multi-instrumentalist, arranger, composer, music director, producer, DJ, and educator). He will be rehearsing/ performing in the West End at Night Under the Stars Concert and Music in the Park with Kebbi Williams 50-piece band (are you totally excited yet!). Since he will be spending so much time in the neighborhood, he wants to walk to his rehearsal venues (WEPAC, Star Theatre) and performances (Wren’s Nest and Howell Park).
Our neighbor, Kebbi Williams has asked if one of our West End neighbors can host Miguel from Thursday to Sunday. It will be the coolest house guest that you will have in a long time. We’re talking serious facebook picture opportunity.
If interested in hosting Miguel, please email or call Brent Brewer today to make arrangement for Miguel.
For commuting purposes, it is best if he stays in the Historic West End District; however, a Westview host would also be appreciated.
Many of you asked for an e-version of the newsletter, and it has been posted on the Westview website. Thank you Patrick and Steffi for adding these to the neighborhood website.
Best, AyanaAccess in two places.
