While Lee has been on tour of the east coast exploring and scouting locations, I've been working on Earthbound Moon's first local site (well, local for some of us). I've had the great pleasure of meeting and working with Tamara Loewenstein, who is part of Urban Share Community Gardening Project. The volunteers of Urban Share have created the incredible Free Farm at Gough and Eddy Streets in San Francisco. All of the produce grown at the garden is given away to those in need at no cost.
EbM's role at the Free Farm is to work together with Tamara (Curator and Community Arts Coordinator for the Free Farm), the surrounding community and the garden volunteer community to have an artist install work along the garden's Eddy Street fence. It may take some time before we reach the installation point, but over the past two weekends I've been lucky to spend time working at the garden.
The Free Farm welcomes volunteers to help with all the tasks necessary to keep the garden producing. If you every feel the need to get dirty and garden, they have work hours on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10am to 2pm and everyone can help.
