It’s the 2011 BIG DIG GIG
a Plant Swap and More
at the Hyde Park Art Center
5020 S. Cornell Avenue
 Chicago, IL 60615

Celebrate and be a part of the GRAND PLANTING of the Hyde Park Art Center’s garden and the GRAND OPENING of General Economy, Exquisite Exchange (GEEE): a post-retail shop, rooftop tomato garden and seed library.

Potluck Barbeque: Friday, May 20, 3 -7pm
(If you don't have anything to bring, please just come and share our abundance)

Garden Party: Saturday, May 21, 10am – 2pm

See what plants can do! Visit our post-retail shop where neighborly trade is the operative currency. A wide variety of heirloom tomatoes, herbs, succulents and perennials will be available for sale at neighborly low prices or exchange.

Become part of Hyde Park Art Center’s living future! After you dig up your yard for spring maintenance, donate the surplus plants to establish a vital HPAC garden. Or, exchange plants, home-made gifts, re-giftables, gardening books and cookbooks, recipes, or any other thing you’d be willing to share with a neighbor.

Check out our Rooftop Tomato Garden.
Borrow free seeds from the GEEE Seed Library.
See how local abundance supports an open economy.

Special thanks to the Rebuilding Exchange and Seeds of Change.
