“A small portrait of the Richmond, Va based Wingnut Anarchist Collective between February and August of 2011” by Ethan Silverstein of Boston, MA.

Check out this movie our friend put a lot of work into! Keep in mind that not everyone in this film is still a Wingnut resident, or necessarily supportive of all Wingnut projects. Clearly a 20 minute film can’t capture the complexities of our lives. Things aren’t always sunshine and roses. But we hope that everyone in this movie is doing awesome anarchist things and having a great time doing them!

Today we are headed up to Charlottesville to pick up 27 new trees, bushes, and vines to be planted in the Wingnut Orchard. We will also be planting wildflowers to support pollinators and hopefully getting honeybees from a friend to have out there as well.
Tomorrow night (Friday) some of us will be going out super late (midnight or so) to put all of these purty plants in the ground. So bring some coffee or caffeinated tea and join us if you want!
We will be going up to Hanover on a regular basis to take care of the Orchard. If anyone has interest in helping, painting signs, tending bees, tending chickens, building water collection devices, building organic bug traps, hanging out in the country for a couple hours, etc. please let us know so you can get involved!
Here are the varieties we hope to get today:

(Kenneth) Yates Persimmon
Hardy Kiwi
Illinois Everbearing Mulberry
LSU Purple FIg
Hardy Chicago Fig
Celeste Fig
2 Trentberry Huckleberry
Yadkin Blueberry (more…)

Here are some pictures of the Wingnut this Fall. You can see some of our Halloween decorations. (more…)
