Nearly 2000 acorns planted. 250 daffodils. Thanks to everyone for your help with the Supervene Forest.
Supervene Forest artist Adrian Barron has returned home to the UK - we miss you Adrian! - but we had one last planting today: a member of the London Grove Friends Meeting brought along these acorn seedlings that members had planted in memorium for one of their members. Today we planted them in their own special plot. We also had three little guys that were planted in pots at the DCCA in Emily Artinian's studio last month - they're now in the ground: thank you Peter Furman, Carol Mauer, Ujju Shenoy, and Pam Finkelman!
Thanks to the Daily Local for covering The unTOLL Booth, Adrian Barron's Supervene Forest, our Arterial Motives show, and Street Road Artists Space in general! We especially love the fact that we are in the Business section, considering Street Road's mission as an evolution of the family real estate business into an art practice.
The great acorn planting is ON today, in spite of the rainy weather. Bring your rain gear and especially your mud boots.
Chili and hot cider will be provided to warm things up.
We are adding in 250 daffodils to the planting of 1000 acorns - as we've learned they are a deterrent to deer.
Should be pretty fantastic in the early spring as well.
Planting started yesterday in advance of the gloomy forecast (artist Adrian Barron with Donna Goepfert):
