Big Dig Gig

June 2, 2012 @ 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Join us for a BIG DIG GIG with Art Center residency project, General Economy, Exquisite Exchange (G.E.E.E.)!

After you dig up your yard for spring maintenance and thin out all the overgrowing perennials, trade and/or donate your surplus plants with G.E.E.E. at the Art Center! In return, you can take home a beautiful heirloom tomato seedling for your own garden!

Stop by on June 2nd when G.E.E.E. will host an arty garden party. Help us celebrate the first anniversary of the Hyde Park Art Center’s Abundance Garden as we prune last year’s bounty of plants donated by individuals from the community, and plant new local surpluses.

See how local abundance supports a general economy.

Want to know more about G.E.E.E.? Check us out at or stop by during regular Art Center hours to trade plants, books, and more!
