A day in the garden not to be missed.
1st: BYODJ
Happening ALL DAY (begins at 3pm)
Our friend Orange will be setting up to DJ for an all afternoon BBQ (bring your speciality for the grill) at LPV. We provide the heat > you provide the treats!
He wants you to BRING YOUR OWN MUSIC—Vinyl, CDs, iPods—and he’ll put it on! There will be good music, good food, and good people. What more can you ask for?!
2nd: Splace Possiblity
In the afternoon (from 3-5pm)
Bring a cork for a small boat making activity organized by Dillon de Give!
Splace Possiblity is a workshop that invites participants to build a small boat with a cork, and share the story of drinking associated with it. This is not an instructional class, just a place to sit down and make a small boat however you like with your cork and natural materials from the garden. Participants to the building action are invited to take a boat home as a souvenir, but must agree to sail it down a street gutter in a New York rainstorm, and document the experience in some way. The winner of best boat design will get a small prize.
