Painting with GreenHouse17!

Have you been looking for a way to brush up on your painting skills? If so, come out to our Painting with GreenHouse17 event hosted by the talented instructors at Ethos! In this class, you will create a beautiful painting inspired by GreenHouse17’s farm. The paintings will go home with you to serve not only as a snazzy new decor piece in your home, but also as a reminder of the importance of giving individuals a safe, violence-free space to grow and flourish.

The class is $30 per person and everyone is invited! We hope you’ll join us on December 10th at Ethos for this wonderful opportunity! For more information, join our event page on Facebook!

Message from Our Executive Director

A message from Darlene Thomas, GreenHouse17 Executive Director:

“Our vision is a community, nation, and world in which intimate partner abuse no longer exists. The safety and healing of survivors are complicated by systemic oppression. We stand against sexism, racism, homophobia, xenophobia, and other forms of persecution. And we will nurture lives harmed by intimate partner abuse. Today, tomorrow, and until the violence ends.”
