5 Days go before the Hanging Gardens go up on the Forest Arms.

To-do list:

Order Plants

Find a tent system in case of rain

Say some prayers that we don't get rain

Find out how volunteers need to book their time to get paid for the day

Eat more of yesterday's homemade rhubarb pie

Email volunteers with agenda for the day

Edit the press release for the project

Follow-up with Marvin, Model D's photographer

Meet with Scott and Lorenzo about creating a sign for the project and developing web content

Find out if we need permits for the event

Test out fastening system for pocket gardens with building owner, UCCA staff, Phil and Tadd


Get feedback on planting strategy from Greening of Detroit, JJR, landscape designers at Woolly Pockets

See what Single Barrel Detroit has in mind for a film about the planting day

Make sure the Juliets have all they need for their performance

Find out whether the DSO will be performing

Play in my first soccer game of the new Detroit Futbol League

I wish we could adopt a small army for this week, but this is gonna be sweet.
