A groundswell of volunteers helped to produce one of Moab’s most creative events of the season, the annual Trashion Show held Saturday, Feb. 29 at Woody’s Tavern.
Organized by the Resiliency Hub, participants modeled fantastic upcycled costumes while enjoying music and door prize while judging the best outfits.
“As an all-volunteer-run, grassroots, nonprofit organization, our money goes directly into our programs, operational costs, and community resources,” said Claire Core, board president of the Resiliency Hub.
“Our mission at Resiliency Hub is to inspire resilience in the Moab community through dynamic learning, open conversations, and stewardship of creative initiatives that rethink, retrofit, and regenerate our community. We do this through our three main ‘spokes:’ food and farming, holistic waste management, and permaculture land stewardship,” said Core in an email.
“Our programs in these fields include the management of the The CommuniTea Garden (a permaculture green space open to all in downtown Moab), Moab Community Gardens (annual vegetable growing spaces available to all interested community members to make food and land tending more accessible), and finally collaboration towards a creative reuse culture in Moab. We host monthly community conversations on timely topics at our #TeaAndaTopic series.
“We also host monthly garden-related talks at one of our community gardens spaces, host volunteer garden workdays, seasonal celebrations, skill-shares, and more. We hope to see you at some of our many events and gatherings this year!”
Core thanked everyone who attended the Trashion Show 2020, and the many people who donated door prizes to runway winners. She also noted the musicians who played sets throughout the evening.
“This event couldn’t have happened without the huge volunteer effort from so many people. Thank you so much, we couldn’t do this without you” said Core.
