New Future Fest Event: Coin Carnival!

Wondering what to do with all the small change sliding around on the floor of your car? With the nickels and dimes cluttering your dresser or the collection of pennies between couch cushions? This Saturday from 12-4:00 p.m. at the Huss Future Festival, we’re putting loose change to good use at the first ever Coin…

Future Festival food

Future Fest: The Food

One thing is for sure: we in the *cino community love food.  We love growing, cooking, blessing, eating and sharing it (not so much the doing-the-dishes part).  And so, one of the things we all delight in is the range of delicious food and beverages featured each year at the Huss Future Festival.  You can…

Future Festival music

Future Fest: The Music

What would a festival be without a day full of music? We can’t have one without it, and so we’ve lined up an entire day of live music to accompany your adventures, coin carnival-ing, and art buying, and we have some excellent performers ready to lull you into audio bliss. Check out the set list…

Hussagram: Shining with or without the sun!

For the second year, we’re hosting Family Fun Nights once a week at the Huss Project! We have been blessed with much more rain this year than we had last year and that’s been wonderful — especially for the Garden. But it also has meant that most of our Family Fun Nights have had to move indoors….

Gail Walters

Huss Stories: Awake now

Local artist Gail Walters became involved with *culture is not optional and The Huss Project four years ago when Rob and Kirstin Vander Giessen-Reitsma approached the Three Rivers Artists Guild to participate in the 2010 Huss Future Festival. Since then, she has made Huss School a second home for her artistic pursuits, renting out a…

Hussagram: Let there be light (again)!

During last Friday’s workday, *cino interns (like Chelsea, above) and staff prepared the old Kindergarten Room for a Storytelling Night that evening. The room has come along way in the last year; the drop ceiling is entirely gone, which makes the space feel so much more open! But the biggest, most exciting work in recent…

Hussagram: Is that a painting of a garlic scape?

In less than a month, The Huss Project will host our Fourth Annual Future Festival! Last year we had a great variety of art vendors (as seen above). We had everything from felt mushrooms sewn by Emily Ulmer to paintings of vegetables by Larry-Michael Hackenberg to graffiti of sea creatures on records by Thomas Brothers. This…

Rummage sale

Give Huss your stuff!

The inaugural Huss Future Festival in 2010 featured a GIGANTIC rummage sale.  Now, after narrowing the focus to books and clothing for a couple of years, the 2013 festival will see a return to the secondhand glory of the first year!  We’re now accepting donations for the mega-sale, which will take place on July 20…

Huss Stories: From Costa Rica to Three Rivers

Costa Rica is a beautiful land to come from, filled with life teeming in its forests and in its water. I am fortunate to belong to this soil. I am blessed to live amongst the colors of Latin America, and to dance with its people. To leave this sanctuary and come to the United States…

Hussagram: We dine together

It’s getting hotter and hotter out there and we all need to keep hydrated! Ainsley Rynders, *cino summer intern, fills glasses full of water to wash down a freshly made chicken pad thai at our most recent Underground Supper Club. We are passionate about cooking, and we love to share it with others; but, like…
