Sowing Spring Crops

This workshop costs $10, preregistration required, register here: http://bit.ly/2nkNuzr. Lettuce, radishes, and peas - oh my! This is an informal, hands-on working lab in our demonstration garden beds at the Grateful Tomato Garden. This workshop includes helpful handouts on the basics of planting cool season crops such as lettuce, radishes and peas. As we work together to read seed packets and plant some crops together, we will discuss topics such as when to plant which crops, days to maturity, seed spacing, seed planting depth, and seed planting techniques. Everybody will get to poke in some seeds, so come dressed for crouching, kneeling, and getting a wee bit dirty. Spring has sprung! This workshop is limited to 10 participants.

Foxygen

Foxygen and Star Power is the Los Angeles songwriting duo of 24-year-olds Sam France and Jonathan Rado. In May 2011, France and Rado nervously handed off a CD-R of this homemade mini-opus Take the Kids Off Broadway (Jagjaguwar, 2012) to producer and visionary Richard Swift after his performance in a Lower East Side club. The duo, who had just mixed and burned the disc that very night, had been devotees of Swift’s outsider-pop oeuvre since high school, when they first began recording their own pubescent forays into oddball rock n’ roll (At least a dozen records were finished before they graduated high school).
