Did you miss our presentation? Watch it now!

As part of a Community Visioning process in Three Rivers, Michigan, the Huss Project was invited to present our project for consideration as a community priority moving into the future.

Huss visioning 2

How would we spend $500,000? Come hear the answer Wednesday!

As part of the visioning process for the city of Three Rivers, Rob and I did a whirlwind presentation about the Huss Project on February 11.  So many citizens voiced their support for the Huss Project that we’ve been invited back to this week’s session to do a 10-minute presentation on how we’d spend $500,000. …

The Huss Project to present at Three Rivers Visioning session

Winter tends to be a quiet time at the Huss Project, but there’s always plenty going on behind the scenes.  This year, we are honored to be participating in a visioning process for the City of Three Rivers.  The first session on January 21 was a wonderful opportunity to hear about the city staff and…

Fall Colors Supper Club

A fall colors dinner

People keep telling us that we should start a restaurant. To quote one satisfied Supper Club attendee, “You guys are the best restaurant in Three Rivers!” Even said glibly, this is a comment that has stuck with us. We would never sell short the efforts of those restauranteurs already established in our fine city, but…

Downtown Harvest Market

Join us at the Downtown Harvest Market!

The garden at the Huss Project has become something special for the folks involved in and around the school. We find ourselves continuing to learn more about the process of growing food, of sharing that food, and what it means in the context of what we’re trying to do at Huss. The arm of that…

September storytelling

A rich autumn harvest of stories

If you weren’t sure already, *culture is not optional and company love good food. Out of this love grew a storytelling event on Friday, September 12, with the theme of (you guessed it!) “Food.” White Yarrow Farm — a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Farm in Marcellus, Michigan, operated by Dale Hasenick and Jo Beachy —…

Summer 2014

A look back at a full summer at Huss

When summer winds down, when temperatures fall and the distinct smell of autumn infuses the air, we at the Huss Project find ourselves in a time of reflection. Summer is our busiest time of the year, and this past summer was our busiest yet! We kicked off the season by screwing together a cadre of picnic…

Downtown Harvest Market

Announcing the Downtown Harvest Market!

The season ended at the Three Rivers Farmers Market last week, but we’ve been enjoying our little stand too much to quit just as so much produce is becoming available in Southwest Michigan. So, we’re working with a number of folks to continue a market in downtown Three Rivers:  the Downtown Harvest Market! The Market will be…

August storytelling

Stories inspired by local haunts

Our latest night of storytelling magic centered around the theme of local haunts. At first, there was confusion about what this meant. Were we telling ghost stories in August? The intended theme of the night was meant to inspire folks to tell stories about meaningful places in their lives, places that they would return to again…

Vandalism

Vandalism: Is it “just” a tomato?

A couple of weeks ago, Rob arrived at the Huss Project to find the yard around the community garden strewn with vegetables.  We’d been battling a woodchuck nemesis, and also a possum, but this was too sophisticated for those critters, if you can call throwing tomatoes at the windows “sophisticated.”  Let’s just say, it was…

Kickball

Community Fun Night finale!

The sounds of play have filled the Huss Project each Wednesday night this summer. Shouts of excitement and sometimes frustration have mingled with the sounds of balls flying through the air, paper rustling for the craft of the night, and crackers crunching between kids’ hungry teeth. Now we invite you all to come share in…

July storytelling

Stories inspired by books

Though it was a bit obscured by the lead up to and execution of Future Festival 2014, we did gather on July 11 for another evening in our Summer Storytelling Series. As we at the Huss Project continue to seek new media and methods by which to share and listen to each other’s stories, we recognize there…
