This Saturday - Let's Guerilla Garden the DC State Fair

Attention: Gardeners. Foragers.  Farmers.  Planters.  Weeders.  Flower Pickers.  Guerillas one and all.

The legendary DC State Fair has snuck up on us and will be taking place in all its glory this weekend, Saturday, Sept. 22.  The DC Guerilla Gardeners (DCGG) have been off the local ag scene far too long and we're taking this opportunity to get our hands dirty and start throwing things.  And by things, I mean SEED BOMBS.

DCGG will be hosting a SEED BOMB table at the DC State Fair - we were super popular (read: messy) at the 2011 fair, so this year is sure to be a hoot.  DCGG has been dormant for a bit, so seize this opportunity to get involved as we enter a new era of DCGG activity.  Below is a list of ways you can help out for this upcoming event:

1. VOLUNTEER: We need volunteers from 9:30 AM - 5:00 PM.  Sign up anywhere from 1 hour to all day.  No experience necessary!

2. DESIGN:  We need simple flyers and we need a sign for the table.  Pitch in by writing, designing, or printing.

3. DONATE:  The table fee and supplies are coming out of a few people's pockets.  If you'd like to pitch in some mula or supplies (clay, soil, seeds, tiny boxes for the seed bombs), we'd be eternally grateful.  And I'll bring you homemade jam as thanks.

4. STOP BY:  Even if you can't help out, stop on by our table and introduce yourself.

The DC State Fair really “digs” DCGG, so they’re psyched to have us as a last-minute addition and we’re psyched right back.  Get in touch at to help out, guerillas.  Looking forward to many more planting events in the next few months!
