2014 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Heidi will host a series of events celebrating community gardens in Strawberry Mansion. The events will include three multi-generational workshops, culminating in large-scale sculptural installations at garden festivals hosted by the East Park Revitalization Alliance (EPRA). Designed to foster community, educate participants about urban farming and environmental issues, and include them in the creation of the installation art, the workshops will teach plant-based dye techniques and seed bombing. Heidi’s goal is to not only see gardens growing all along the Ridge Avenue corridor, but to inspire growth: Growth of food, awareness, creativity, community, and public support.
