Spruill Gallery gets a garden.

It's April 1st, is this tomfoolery?  No, it is not!  And, I could not be more excited!

Read about it here and here.  Pattie Baker and Bob Lundsten, along with Spruill Art Gallery's Hope Cohn, are the think tank behind this great idea.

Beginning right now, right this very second, I am leading an initiative to launch and run the planned vegetable garden at the Spruill Gallery in Dunwoody, GA.  And, I need your help!  There are so many ideas flowing, it is hard to know where to start.

Oh, wait.  I know.  We need to start with the basics.  We need bodies and we need money.

We need to raise at least $3000 during the month of April, or this garden will not happen.

Please, if Spruill has done good things for you, for your kids, for your families, over the years (yes, I am talking to you, remember that time our kids did camp together at Spruill? Or the jewelery making class you took?), now is your chance to give back to Spruill.  This is a unique opportunity to do something new and innovative in our community.  It's art.  It's food.  It's green.  It's happening NOW.  And, you can be a part of it.

Donate by sending a check to: Spruill Gallery, 4681 Ashford Dunwoody Road, Dunwoody, GA 30338. Be sure to write in the subject line that it is for the garden. (A Paypal option should be live in about a week.)

The garden is scheduled to be installed May 2.  An art opening for an installation titled Architecture in the Garden is scheduled for June 2.
