Check out this holy mess of a wholly abandoned church-like thingamahoo:
Wooo-weee! That baby's less than lovely. But have no fear, good people of Florida Avenue NW, for the DCGG is here! Where others look and see decay, we guerilla gardeners look and see potential. (And maybe a little decay, but that's okay.)
Join me on the evening of Saturday, October 2nd as we stealthily dig around and make this ugly jumble of a spot into a lovely jumble of plants and goodness mcgoodnesson!
What: The FOURTH-EVER D.C. Guerilla Gardeners Event! Woo Woo Woo Woo!
When: Saturday, October 2, 2010
Time: 6:30 PM
Where: About 932 Florida Avenue NW, an easy 1.5 blocks from the U Street/African American Civil War Memorial Metro stop on the Green Line
Bring: Gloves, garden tools (spade, trowel, shovel, etc.), and a plant (preferably one that thrives on neglect). You might also want to bring a mask because, to be honest, the place is a bit stinky. And maybe you should consider wearing your running shoes because our crime fighting heros, the D.C. Metropolitan Police, patrol this area a whole heckuva lot. We'll be digging at night, so we'll be all suspicious-looking. Woo!
This is our first night event (and also our first not-as-hot-as-Hades event), so let's mark the occasion with a whoppin' amazing turnout and no near fatal heat stroke scares! If you would be ever so kind as to RSVP that you're coming, I'd be grateful. It helps me plan. And if I get all Betty Crocker-ish before our dig, I'll need to know how many people to make cookies for. (Or buy cookies for, which is more likely.)
I'll catch your gardenin' butts on October 2nd!
