Cottonwood Institute was honored to be invited to table at the Reverb Eco-Village during the Maroon 5 and Train concert at Red Rocks on Thursday, July 28, 2011.
What started out as clear sunny skies, quickly changed to clouds and gusty wind, but we persevered; papers, markers, and all! During the concert, we featured The Journal Project. Journaling is a crucial component in a child’s education, so we gathered old markers, crayons, and papers found around the office and asked concert-goers to decorate our recycled journal covers. This was a great start to our goal of getting journals to all of our students, encouraging them to document their adventures while learning how to change the world.
While the wind closed us down early, the spirit of the Eco-Village and the excited concert-goers kept our message going: Changing the World, One Adventure at a Time!
A special thanks goes out to Maroon 5, Train, and Reverb for making this opportunity possible and to Melissa DeVaney-Goss for volunteering at the event.
