GP night out + Greater Austin Garbage Arts

Tonight the Garden Posse is taking it downtown. No gardening tonight - we're in our winter hibernation/planning period. But you are welcome to join us for some wholesome Garden Posse fun.

We'll be meeting up at Koriente at 8pm for dinner. We'll be talking about our new website, which local web designer Christian Bowers has generously volunteered to help us create. And we'll be planning our upcoming events, so you can know when we are actually guerrilla gardening, perhaps weeks in advance. Then we're going to check out a show at nearby Stubb's, with The Morning Benders and The Submarines.

And, this is not a Garden Posse event per se, but I highly suggest you visit the clothing swap at Greater Austin Garbage Arts (GAGA) next Saturday. Bring old clothes, and you can trade and repurpose them with help from resident artists. GAGA is committed to the idea of zero waste - the first step of which is finding new uses for old stuff. Plus, they offer FREE SEWING LESSONS. You won't find that anywhere else in Austin.

GAGA is located at 2214 South 1st Street (just north of Oltorf, across from End of an Ear and next to a plaza with Cream Vintage and a coffee shop).
