seed circus at the oakland museum
The Seed Circus is a series of four events, spanning late spring to fall 2010, that each explore an aspect of urban farming. The events have four themes—Sheep and Felt; Foraging; Pickling; and Fall Harvest—but they have a common ethos of sharing information and making and doing with one’s own hands. Seed Circus celebrates the tactile pleasure of the natural world, and the social pleasure of community. Artists, farmers-to-be, layfolk, locals, foodies, and children all welcome.
