Soap Box Talks coinciding with Slow Food Nation – the seed: a proposal for a new branch of the san francisco public library

The Seed: exhibition ran concurrently with Amy Franceschini's Victory Garden Project which transformed  San Francisco City Hall Plaza into a public community garden.  Slow Food Nation  held their annual event here and as a San Francisco city employee and Curator of the project, I worked with the artists to design conversation sessions addressing the public about the potential for implementing ideas inherent in the exhibition proposal. The conceptual installation at the SFAC Grove Street Gallery was a proposal for a new branch of the San Francisco Library dedicated to seed exchange, as well as the loaning of gardening tools and literature associated with farming, gardening and urban greening.
