Clothesline and Garden Party
Sunday, 10 October, 2010 - 10:00 - 13:00
Head on over to Tricycle Garden's urban farm on Bainbridge and 9th Streets to visit a climate success story. We will spend the morning from 10 am - 1 pm preparing Richmond's first urban farm for its winter hoop houses. After we're done working, we'll head on over to the Richmond Folk Festival, which is only a 15 minute walk from Tricycle Garden's urban farm. Walk, bike, ride the bus, or car-pool to our event!
Prior to the 10/10/10, we are organizing an awareness campaign. Please join us by hanging a clothesline in your front yard. We will provide t-shirts painted with 350 to hang on your line.
How to Get Involved Planning the Event: help get the t-shirts out - contact Elli to help deliver. help with PR - sending press advisories help with follow-up - visiting mayor and others to spread the word
Event Host: www.tricyclegardens.org Three architects founded Tricycle Gardens (501(c)3) in 2002 while living in Church Hill–a neighborhood in Richmond, Virginia that juxtaposes meticulously renovated historic homes with high-density public housing; stunning vistas of the James River with abandoned, overgrown lots. The founders believed community gardens and the simple act of growing food were the fastest ways to improve the health of their community–both for the residents and the environment. What started with the city’s first community garden on a vacant lot owned by The Better Housing Coalition, has grown into four Community Gardens, three Learning Gardens, a green house, and now an urban farm.
