Support the Villages Orb Project HERE!

The Villages Orb Project started out as an idea local glass-blowing artist, Tim Blair, had been wanting to try along the trails of the Villages of Van Buren County.  It began June 1, 2022 as a collaboration between Bloom and Bark (Orb design, creation, and distribution along the trails) and the Villages of Van Buren (Orb promotion and marketing - aka getting the word out!). 52 Orbs were made that year with no outside assistance.

For year two, we reached out and applied for local grant opportunities in the area. With help from the Van Buren Foundation and the Villages of Van Buren, we were able to get the funding necessary to continue this fun project. 103 Orbs were made for 2023!

Our hope is for this project to continue and grow with each year.
We are asking for your help to keep this interactive art installation project going annually. Will you give today? 

Contributions in any amount are welcome and gratefully received.
