Grow Art & Garden Center - A Great New Addition to Mill Valley!

Have you driven by Proof Lab lately and wondered why the corner there looks a little greener?  That's because the surf shop's owners and others have come together to create a little piece of sustainability on what just a few months ago was an empty lot. 

They're offering classes in everything from raising chickens and honeybees to pottery and other arts.  Check out what's happening here.  MOGP veggie exchange attendees Daisy Carlson and Gordon Edwards are selling veggie starts there as part of their work with Root for Peace.  Grow has also hosted a farmers market and pumpkin patch!  And we've noticed too that Proof Lab has been offering some interesting events lately including showing eco-oriented documentaries.

We've discussed starting a weekly veggie exchange there with Proof Lab owner Will Hutchinson and he's all for it . . . we just need a couple dedicated volunteers to host it at the time of their choosing starting in May or June.  What a great place to hang out for an hour on a Saturday morning . . . let us know if you can help!

  1. I highly commend you in doing this! I think we need more of this in our world of high unemployment plus the fact people will know where their food is coming from
