Snapshot: Ready, Set, Grow

We’re counting down the days to the 19th Annual Rare and Unusual Plant Sale on May 14 and 15th. It’s now just 24 days away, and the greenhouse at City Farm is looking lush and bountiful. The germination has gone very well, and Rich says that there will be a great selection of plants at the sale. We can’t wait! The greenhouse is humming with activity. Check out all of the work that’s been going on inside the hive:

Work on the 2011 Plant Sale poster is also underway! Every year, the Community Land Trust commissions a local artist to create a brand-new design. Far more than a simple flyer, these posters are beautiful, one-of-a-kind works of art that commemorate each sale and celebrate the talent all around us in Providence. The 2011 poster is being hand-drawn by Ian Cozzens of Secret Door Projects, who has produced posters for the last two sales. Click here to read Ian’s blog entry about the creative process, see a preview of the poster, and watch him at work!
