TWO FREE PUBLIC EVENTS LAST SUMMER YIELD A VIDEO AND NICE PRESS
Thanks to all who participated in two free public events on Friday July 29, and by doing so made it possible for Angie Epifano and me to create this 4-minute video shown at the Berkeley Community Media Summer Shorts Movie Jam: 48 Hour Film Festival.

The events were also covered in this report on Berkeleyside.

AGAPANTHUS PROJECT
Thanks to all who have made the Agapanthus Project possible. Over fifteen free public Create-With-Agapanthus events were held in Berkeley parks during the summer of 2011. I'm currently accepting donations of gone-to-seed Agapanthus flowers for the project. See all the details, including a photo gallery link, here.
