Big Dig Gig

May 21, 2011 @ 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Contribute to Hyde Park Art Center’s garden and General Economy, Exquisite Exchange (G.E.E.E): a post-retail shop, rooftop tomato garden and seed library. See what plants can do! Visit our post-retail shop where neighborly value is the operative currency. A wide variety of heirloom tomatoes, herbs, succulents and perennials will be available for sale or exchange. Become part of the Center’s living future! After you dig up your yard for spring maintenance, donate the surplus plants to establish a vital HPAC garden. Or exchange plants, home-made gifts, re-giftables, gardening books and cookbooks, recipes, or any other thing you’d be willing to share with a neighbor. Check out a tomato twining trellis system. Borrow free seeds from the GEEE Seed Library. See how local abundance supports a general economy. Friday, May 20, 3 – 7pm: Potluck BBQ Saturday, May 21, 10 am – 2 pm: Garden Party
