Please join us on November 14th at 10:00 am in Coconut Grove as Ransom Everglades students engage retail store owners in our eco-art effort.  

Volunteers will install the seedlings in water-filled plastic cups on the retail windows and ask store owners to care for them until January 23rd, when they will collect and plant them on Biscayne Bay.

This is the first year our project will create this intervention in Coconut Grove.  You can see images of some of the "adopted" seedlings hanging at  Lincoln Road storefronts the last couple of years by visiting:
Also, to get a sense of the process, see our video at:
I appreciate your enthusiasm for this important participatory art project aimed at creating new habitats above and below the waterline.
