Beginning July at La Colmena

July has already been super exciting! The Queermese was a success, we had a great Bachata and Merengue night, saw the beginnning of the textiles dyeing workshop, and someone donated a bookshelf, two tables, a lot of chairs, and a bed to the space.
We have an awesome program for July, and more and more neighbors are coming by to chat with us, take workshops and bring proposals.
And Melipona, the Colmena’s queen bee-cat, whom we rescued the day we got the keys for the house, is looking so much bigger and super healthy!
