Collinwood artist Linda Zolten Wood is admittedly never bored. When she’s not painting upcycled materials and conducting local workshops, Wood teaches art at regional schools without art programs.

 

“I’m primarily a painter trying to make it relevant in a sustainable way,” said Wood, who over the past decade has become known for her painted rain barrels.

 

Now the artist is expanding her vision and displaying her passions — which includes holding rain barrel decorating workshops throughout the area — with the inaugural GreenFest, which celebrates sustainability Sun 7/15 at the Coit Road Farmers’ Market.

 

“It’s the merging of workshops with other sustainable practices, and trying to get Coit Road Market new customers,” Wood said.

 

In a nutshell, GreenFest is centered around all aspects of healthy living at the Coit Road Farmers’ Market, with booths from local, urban farmers and bakers. There’s also educational opportunities pertaining to beekeeping, raising chickens, sheep and bunnies, as well as gardening tips.  Wood will also do her thing as the Collinwood Painted Rain Barrel director. She’ll guide participants in sanding, priming, designing and painting their rain barrels. The class, which requires a $25 donation, is limited to 10 on a first-come, first served basis.
