The Turqoise Table is a global movement started by Kristin Schell who was on a mission to find ways to love her neighbours! One day she decided to set up a picnic table on her front yard. She painted it turquoise and began inviting friends, neighbours and strangers to hang out and do life together at the Turquoise Table. Little did she know that a new concept of hospitality would unfold in her neighborhood, and before long The Turquoise Table® would lead to a movement of Front Yard People—ordinary people who long to create community right where they live.
Today, there are Turquoise Tables all across America from California to Maine. In all fifty states and in eleven countries, Turquoise Tables have become a symbol of hospitality, a safe place to sit down and connect over a cup of coffee or glass of sweet tea.
St. Thomas is pleased to have a Turquoise Table in our front yard! We invited anyone who are passing by to take a seat and enjoy the love and hospitality of St. Thomas! You are also welcome to take advantage of our new "Little Library" set up beside the turquoise table.
Take a seat. Stay a while!
