The Lower East Side’s community gardens are coming together for the third annual Harvest Arts Festival this weekend. More info from the Facebook invite put up by Loisaida Community Gardens (LUNGS):
This year, the Festival coincides with the People’s Climate March. In support of the March, many gardens will host workshops and teach-ins on a wide range of environmental issues. LUNGS is working closely with Converge for Climate to coordinate our own homegrown workshops and theirs. The NYC Climate Convergence is a weekend packed with skill-shares, teach-ins, speak-outs and protests from September 19 to 21 in conjunction with the People’s Climate March. The gardens will also host fabulous performances in music, dance, theater, spoken word, on site visual artists, and more. One of the highlights of this year’s Festival is a performance by Bread and Puppet Theater of their new piece “Anti Tar Sands Manifesto Pageant.” On Sunday, the Festival gets on its feet as community gardeners and friends join the People’s Climate March en masse. This is going to be a historic event we need to step up as New Yorkers, if you can help in any way, please message us or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
