Video Footage from Artscape 2010
Major thanks to Nick Biddle for shooting this video!
I was a little worried about what to include in my post-Artscape post since I didn't spend a whole lot of time taking photos. Luckily this video made for the DIY Fest website includes a great overview of all the canning, cleaning, composting, and other DIY fun that I included at my table.
Thank you so much to everyone who stopped by and said hello.

Soapberries and Baby Bok Choy Seeds
The baby bok choy seeds are perfect for city gardeners growing in containers, and since they are a cool weather crop it's not too late to start a small garden with them. You can start them in mid to late August. Yum!
A few folks even bought compost worms and were really excited about it. There were a few remarks that the last thing they had expected to buy at Artscape was worms.
There is nowhere in the city to buy red wiggler worms, which are worms that like to live in decaying material. I bought my from Uncle Jim's Worm Farm and had to have them mailed from PA. I'm inspired to possibly look into having a table at one of the farmer's markets.. we'll see.
Also thanks to Marian Glebes, curator extraordinaire of the section of Artscape where I was located.
As for more photos: someone named Matt House posted a few photos of the Hokusai-inspired Wave Ramp that my brother Elie helped build for one of the Midway exhibits:
More photos of the ramp are on Flickr. The above photo is taken from Matt House's collection.
The video should also be posted soon to http://diyfest.org/.
Check out the website if you're interested in hosting a workshop, having a table, and there will be future video and other content to come!
