Hey there! So it’s been awhile, but I’m back with more photos of Seward businesses and I plan to keep on it. This week I visited SPOKES, a new nonprofit in Seward promoting biking and walking. They offer (free and low cost) bike maintenance classes, access to bikes, adult learn-to-ride classes, and more. I was inspired watching folks learning to ride a bike in Matthews Park. Made me want to go home and try something new. And I visited the shop on volunteer night and watched some bike fixing in action. Thanks to SPOKES for the visit. I’m glad you’re in the neighborhood!

Hi friends.  As you may have noticed, I haven’t shared any photos for awhile.  I guess you could say it was a little hiatus.  But I’m back!

My new plan is to put up photos once a week–with a collection of photos on a subject. I’m thinking of a series on Seward (my neighborhood) businesses, nonprofits, and people. So we’ll see how that goes. Let me know if you have any good ideas for that project.

So for week one : Sisters Camelot, a nonprofit that distributes free organic produce that’s overstocked or getting close to it’s expiration date. They have an old Metro Transit bus, and they drive around to various spots in the city, stop, and hand out groceries.  I went along on the bus a couple of days ago.  It was a rather chilly day to spend 5 hours on an unheated bus. But it was pretty inspiring to see people’s overflowing boxes and bags of free fruit and veggies.
