Bread Bar

Built in the 1890s, Bread Bar originally housed a grain and feed shop but spent most of the last century serving as a bakery, with the word “Bread” printed in large lettering on the side of the storefront. For the past four years, Bread Bar has been bringing quality cocktails and live music to the 170-person former mining town. Rubyfruit is honored to play our acoustic set at this place on a cozy Saturday night in December.

Galactic Farm Jam- Saloon Family Musical Gypsy Potluck

Feeling charged up between LEAF and KINNECTION and not sure what to do with your Wednesday night??

Come one come all to an evening of fantastic musical jamming with a drum circle base. This will surely be a classic night at the galactic sanctuary. All attendees are encouraged to participate by bringing a drum, a musical instrument, or picking up any instrument you find around the house. The goal is to keep the jams going until sunrise. 

A few real special musical guests currently in residence at the galactic sanctuary (Rubyfruit and Cody Meyocks from St. Cinder) will kick things off with some soulful and saloon inspired performance, and then we'll just be jamming all night. 

Folks are encouraged to bring a dish or beverage to share, squish if they want to be comfy late into the night, and we'll be serving our own bamboo shoots and pea blossoms and maybe making some fancy mocktails and cocktails with all that mint we have growing. And of course, goat milk on tap.

Tea Lounge
Massage Lounge
Hot Tub

Chickens & Goats

While this event starts officially at 6 PM, feel free to show up any time from 2:00 on.

Capstone Community Garden

  • Google Calendar ICS

Capstone is a small non profit that has taken 26 previously blighted or vacant lots in the Lower Ninth Ward and developed them into productive gardens and orchards. Located in part of a food desert, Capstone grows and provides food at no cost to those who need it. We also assist others in start their own gardens or allow others to garden on our lots as we have space available.

Capstone has one young fruit and citrus orchard with 30 trees plus another 30 fruit and citrus on other sites throughout the Lower 9th Ward. Honeybees are raised for increased plant and tree pollination as well as honey. The honey harvested from these bees helps pay for the food we give away. Capstone also collects swarms and rescues bees from buildings and houses.
