Come Garden Today with Sandy Sampson!

Update: Check out pictures of the gardening project at Sandy's Blog!

Come on Down Today, Saturday June 7th for a Gardening project with Sandy Sampson!

Sandy will be starting a community garden as part of a residency here at the Pancake Clubhouse! We will be reclaiming an unused plot of land nearby for use as a community vegetable garden. In the spirit of guerilla gardening, the neglected piece of land between Pacific and Holladay on NE 24th avenue, will be totally transformed over the course of the day, culminating in an afternoon BBQ, to which all are invited.

Sandy asks that guests bring a shovel in the morning, and vegetable starts in the afternoon if they would like to join in! No gardening experience required!

Sandy Sampson is one of the founders of Parallel University a not for profit institution created to support and validate independent initiative. Born in Denver, Sandy now splits her time between her home in Portland, Oregon and Las Vegas, Nevada where she is working on "What Stays in Vegas?" a long term collaboration with locals and visitors. Sandy's longest on going collaboration, current working title "Motherhood" begun in 1993, is with her daughter Francesca is certainly her most complex and sustained effort to date.
