This is all happening outside our doors on Mill Avenue at the same time that our reception for Canalscape is happening inside the ASU Art Museum. The reception is FREE and open to everyone. Come inside to see this amazing project and what it could mean for our great city, plus food and beverages, music and a dance performance!
Thank you, Tempe (Tanya and crew) for letting me borrow your info. Click the title link next to go straight to their site.

Market Garden – An important component to the Market on Mill, the Market Garden is being created to help offset the carbon footprint of the event and to providing a central downtown location where residents and schools can come and learn how to garden in the desert and how to live more sustainably on their own land or porch or terrace. It will initially include micro greens and flowers for local restaurants and the Market on Mill. Phase 1 of the garden should be completed by Nov. 10 for the Green Street Tempe Party. The land proposed for the garden is the southwest corner of 5th Street and Forest Avenue.
