Heaps of thanks.

I’d like to thank everyone who came out and supported Garden-in-a-Cup this past Saturday. I cannot thank you enough for the smiles, extra hands, and recycled cups. Keep your eyes peeled for cup gardens being distributed across the city this week! We’d love your help distributing so please contact me if you are interested in this part of the process.

Thanks again,

Beauty where there is none…

After yesterday’s tragedy, I have been searching for more meaning to our Garden-in-a-Cup project. I uncovered this quote from my book collection:

“Gardens promise beauty where there is none, hope over despair, optimism over pessimism, and finally life in the face of death.”
— from Kenneth Helphand’s Defiant Gardens

And we’re germinating!

According to Britannica Encyclopedia, germination “is the sprouting of a seed, spore, or other reproductive body, usually after a period of dormancy (see afterripening). The absorption of water, the passage of time, chilling, warming, oxygen availability, and light exposure may all operate in initiating the process.”

So for those of you who ask why I am so excited about germination, it is because my Garden-in-a-Cup event is a little over a week away. Cup gardens are growing, tags are being made, and swag is being ordered (every good party needs to have a little swag!). Hope to see y’all there.
