Columbia Waterfront Community Gardens Tour & 5th Annual CW Fall Festival - September 14

On Saturday, September 14 from 12:00-1:30 pm, all of the community gardens in the Columbia Waterfront District will be part of a walking tour.  The Urban Meadow is very excited to participate in a joint event with the other beautiful gardens in the neighborhood, each with its own unique history and features. The guided tour will begin at the Human Compass Garden on the corner of Columbia Street and Sackett Streets and will make a stop at each of these gardens along the way: the Amazing Garden, Summit Street Garden, Pirate's Cove Garden, the Backyard Garden, the Urban Meadow and then will end at the South Brooklyn Children's Garden.  At each garden there will be current members to give a presentation about that garden, answer questions about what is going on in the garden and how to get involved.  Come see what we're growing!

The tour is happening on the same day as the 5th Annual Columbia Waterfront Fall Festival, a fun annual event celebrating our vibrant neighborhood and featuring food, local arts and businesses selling their wares, and live music.  The Festival will be on September 14 from 12 pm-6 pm along Columbia Street from DeGraw to Union Street and then along Union from Columbia to Hicks Street. See http://www.carrollgardensassociation.com/ for more information about the festival.

Business Jazz – 8th August 2013 – Hitting the Pause Button



TOPICS: The podcast is put on hold.


All good things come to an end. Or at least have the Pause button pushed.

So it is with this podcast as well.

Producing a podcast takes time and energy. We knew that going in. However, our schedules have conspired against us and we find ourselves needing to focus our attentions elsewhere. For the moment, any road.

Will the podcast return? We can't say it won't, but we don't want to give false hope either.

For now, we'd just like to say "Thank you" to you for taking the time to listen to the podcast. We truly appreciate that you did. It means more to us than you can ever imagine. You star.

Jane, Mark, Paul and Roger

Business Jazz – 2nd August 2013 – Blending the Offline with the Online



TOPICS: How be genuinely attractive by not being online


Do you need to be online?

Really?

After all, we managed to survive without the internet for centuries. People were contented. Businesses succeeded.

In this episode, Jane and Roger talk about how we still need to be active offline to make our online work.

We welcome April Ennis to the podcast. She graciously stepped in when Roger was unavailable recently.

8.30 - 11.00pm
£8 on the door

  • Liane Carroll (piano & vocals)
  • Roger Carey (electric bass)
  • Clive Fenner (drums)
We’re privileged to kick-off our new season with the world-class Liane Carroll. Born in London and raised in Hastings, where she currently lives with her husband, bassist Roger Carey, East Side favourite Liane has been playing the piano since she was three and performing professionally since the age of fifteen. She has toured and recorded with artists such as Gerry Rafferty, Long John Baldry and Paul McCartney. Liane enjoyed success as double winner in the 2005 BBC Jazz Awards and 'Best female jazz vocalist' at the first Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Awards. Liane went on to pick up the 2008 Parliamentary Jazz Award for 'Musician Of The Year.' Later that year Liane formed an exciting new collaboration with the acclaimed Scottish jazz pianist Brian Kellock, and in November the pair toured throughout Scotland, at which The Herald declared, "This may well be British jazz's greatest double act." In 2009 Liane and her trio went stateside for the first time and performed to rapturous audiences at Dizzy's Jazz Club at the Lincoln Centre and the Rochester Jazz Festival. "No one who hears Liane Carroll in person is likely to forget the experience. It's not just that she's a brilliant pianist and a mesmerising singer, but that, like Stevie Wonder, she seems in some magical way to be made out of music. No recording has managed to capture this quality until now, but this one comes close" - Dave Gelly, The Observer (reviewing Liane's CD 'Up and Down'). Liane's latest CD 'Ballads' was released in mid April to great critical acclaim.
