BiS in brief: Starlandia opens event space, Buy Local sets meet

Starlandia opens event space

Starlandia Reclaimed Creative Supply LLC has opened the Starlandia Space Station, a multi-use event space for classes, workshops, community events, and all ages performances.

The Starlandia Space Station is designed to bring affordable activity space to the Starland District. Savannah’s community of artists, performers, musicians, and arts instructors will now be able to showcase their talents and passions in a professional, consistent, accessible and highly quirky space.

“I like to think of it as thus,” says Clinton Edminster, founder and owner of Starlandia, “The Space Station gives us a chance to organize time. Time for music, time for rehearsals, time for learning, and most importantly, time for the community to come together and share thoughtful experiences.”

The new Space Station is also home to Starlandia LIVE, a weekly morning talk show featuring colorful local characters broadcast live on Facebook. Every Monday at 10 a.m., a different guest will join Starlandia LIVE host Clinton Edminster to discuss local events, politics, and more.

A complete list of these events can be found at starlandiasupply.com as well as the Starlandia Facebook page. The space is also available for rent and offers highly competitive pricing as well as non-profit discounts for local community organizations.

Company buys seedling nurseries from Weyerhauser

IFCO Bareroot LLC, a sister company to International Forest Co., will buy four forest seedling nurseries, including one in Jesup, as well as the Flint River Seed Orchard from Weyerhauser Co. The transaction is expected to complete in early 2017, once existing crops are harvested and shipped.

Kroger sponsors ‘round-up’ for cancer

Kroger stores in Georgia are encouraging customers and associates to “round up” their purchases to the nearest dollar amount from Jan. 12-15 to benefit the Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance. For example, a customer who purchases $99.02 of groceries is urged to “Round Up” his bill to $100 by donating 98 cents.

With a goal of raising more than $100,000 dollars, Kroger and GOCA hope the campaign will bring more awareness and knowledge to Georgians about the risks, symptoms and treatment of ovarian cancer. Customers can also make cash donations at Kroger stores.

As the deadliest gynecological cancer, it is estimated that one out of every 75 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer in her lifetime. Learn more at www.gaovariancancer.org.
