|Description:||Join us at Swig to raise money for the Please Touch Community Garden and enjoy live music, DJ's, and drink specials. |
We have already raised over $50,000 in donations, services and products. We need another $10,000 to get the garden open and accessible to the public.
In 2010, local SF artist Gk Callahan partnered with LightHouse for the Blind to obtain a grant from the San Francisco Arts Commission for an ambitious project: a large-scale community garden that would be accessible to all, regardless of ability and mobility. We have named this project the Please Touch Community Garden.
What is unique and special is that the garden will be planted, maintained and enjoyed by the blind community, along with many others. The 4,000 sq ft garden will provide an open space where art and life can happen, where art can be experienced using all of our senses. Using sustainable practices, materials, and methods the project will sprout from an empty lot into a beautiful urban arts garden.
