Secret School

July 27, 2009

Join Secret School and The K.I.D.S. (The Kindness and Imagination Development Society) for four seasons of growing, exchanging, storytelling, and snacking. Throughout the spring, we will exchange seeds, build prototypes for mobile greenhouses, and form a network of secret gardens. Over the summer, we will make books, tell stories, and invent recipes. We’ll celebrate our harvest over the fall, and hunker down together with hot cider and early growing tips over the winter. We will examine what it means to grow a network from the ground up.

Secret School and the K.I.D.S. will issue a series of books and posters that document and explore the hidden network of secret gardens that form B-lines, continuous paths of green spaces for bees, birds, and bugs to travel. Add your garden to the B-line and join us for our future exchanges (this schedule will be updated regularly, so check back often):

At each FEAST, participants will pay a sliding-scale entrance fee for which they will receive supper and a ballot. Diners will vote on a variety of proposed artist projects. At the end of dinner, the artist whose proposal receives the most votes will be awarded funds collected through the entrance fee to produce the project. The work will then be presented during the next FEAST.
