Wednesday, June 20, 7 – 9pm In conjunction with Flux Factory’s June exhibition Bionic Garden, we’ll present Reclaiming Vacant Land for Community Use with Paula Z. Segal of 596 Acres. The 596 Acres project focuses on identifying vacant City-owned property and working with communities on coalition building, political action, and ultimately, influencing the City to turn over control of this property for use as gardens and open spaces.
October 10th, 7pm+
FREE!, but please bring something delicious to share
Imagine the solutions and energy our city could have if everyone who lived here had access to good healthy food, knew why it was their best option, and took pride in it and their health as an investment in their neighbors and the future.
