New to GA/GI: Three from Pittsburgh's Green Network
Three "green" groups have signed on as participants to the GA/GI Festival: Friends of the Pittsburgh Urban Forest, The Student Conservation Association and Garfield Community Farm. Friends of the Urban Forest will be working with us to expand our site locations along Penn Avenue and "recycle" art from their October 30th Arbor Aid event by showcasing some of the best work from this annual art exhibition as well as any new pieces created by the participating artists. Meanwhile university students from the SCA are working hard on a festival strategy that involves projects with children and highlighting the good work they do (while cleverly annexing us to their upcoming MLK Day events). And in other developments...Rev John Creasy of Garfield Community Farm has some exciting ideas that involve art and food! We'll keep you posted!
