Rico, along with the other residents of Hazelnut Grove who design a quilt, will have an opportunity to have their quilt showcased in the March “Sharing the Scraps” if chosen by the show’s curator.

“Sharing The Scraps” is about the lack of equity in our world right now and the haves and the have nots, and how those of us who have not are really struggling, and how we can literally share the scraps of what little we have with the people around us who might have a little bit less in some ways. In the case of Hazelnut Grove, [they have] a lot more than I have, even as a housed person, in terms of the community and safety and structure and support.” Wynde Dyer.
