Thank you! Thank you......
to everyone who threw down and made the most recent garden workdays amazing! There was so much great energy and excitement. Around 15 people showed up this past Sunday to work, get dirty, have fun, be outside, eat food, and meet new people.
Lots of digging, hauling rocks, weeding, cutting wood, constructing beds, seeding, labeling, cooking, and eating. Basically, a blast.
So, big love and thanks to:
Jonathan the great
Month of Mae
and... for our materials:
The Rebuilding Exchange
Brew & Grow
Windy City Harvest
Grand Street Gardens
and and.... all those who worked on the rooftop previously, laying a great foundation for what we are doing now.
:) The garden is flourishing already, with community love and dedication. Look forward to more workdays, some workshops in the future, and general hanging out in a lovely garden!

The plants are growing. Tiny leaves on the trees! Spring storms and winds that make your bike scoot sideways. We have workdays in the garden this week, in between wildly busy and delicious Edible Alchemy pick-ups.
I've been spinning fire again, as the cold does not make my hands numb when I hold my fans!
We're in the toddler stages of creating a performance troupe, something that I've been itching to do for years, but have never found the right time, place, or people. But now!
