We did it! June 5, 2011, Figment Boston

We had a great time yesterday at Figment Boston and tons of visitors participated in growing our very first Community Art Garden!

It was really amazing to see how much people of all ages enjoyed MAKING something creative with their hands.  I'm looking forward to keep growing the garden in different setups or communities.

See more pictures on Stitch and Tickle  and the full set on Flickr.

A huge thanks to all those who donated old sweaters, and a very very special thank you to Silvia Lopez Chavez for her help and instrumental role in the project.

Lastly, hats off to the Figment volunteer organizers for putting together such a great event too. We didn't get to see much of the other events because we were so busy planting flowers but everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves and be thankful for a day of free participatory art!
