Despite its unpolished aesthetic and Ramona Gonzalez’s professed aversion to more conventional ideas about glamour, her music exists in the realm of gauzy fantasy: it is a dream world made reality.

Our Kitchen is supremely happy to announce that  LadyfestGR 2013 has selected our organization to receive the funds raised by this year’s event. In a Facebook post, the group announced, “Our Kitchen Table will receive the proceeds from the event to help support their efforts to bring gardening and fresh produce to low income neighborhoods in Grand Rapids. We’re excited to partner with Our Kitchen Table!”

Taking place on Friday March 22 and Saturday 23, the event offers free workshops, a variety show, vendors and a concert featuring local, regional and national performers. While all performers and presenters must self-identify as female, everyone is welcome to attend.

The Pyramid Scheme Bar will serve as the concert venue for the event. Organizers are currently developing the musical line-up, which will most likely include concerts for both all-ages and 21 & over audiences.

They are securing two additional spaces for the free workshops. Our Kitchen Table will present workshops during the event and be on hand to provide information throughout.

The Bloom Collective will hold its 5th Annual Womyn’s Empowered Health Workshop as part of Ladyfest, as well.
