6BC participated in the 6th Street "Eco" Block Party by having an information stall outside our garden. We had free giveaways - iced tea, lemonade and wildflower seed packets! It had barely begun when the skies darkened, the Heavens opened and we all got rained out. Oh well...a reminder of Nature's awesome power! #peoplepowerplanetparty
Thanks to Urban Aborists for a great job pruning our larger trees in the garden this weekend. It was long overdue. The garden is now safer, the trees are healthier and we have a lot more light!
Students from East Village Community School recently visited our garden for inspiration. They belong to the EVCS after-school gardening club.
Long-time East Village resident Pitts and friends presented their spoken word readings to a small audience at ABC Beer Co. on a chilly Sunday evening. Their poetry was powerful, at times fiery and very enlightening.
In 20016 6BC was the recipient of a lifetime "Achievement in Landscape Design" award at the first annual Green Thumb Community Gardens Recognition Awards.
