I don't believe in culture ... I believe in encounters. -- Gilles Deleuze

Freak Plant fundraiser

June 13th and 14th, 2020

During a lag in new COVID cases, we held a very successful masked and socially distanced fundraiser.

We raised approximately $1000 towards our operating budget and made many new friends from the neighborhood and all over the city.

We hope this will be an annual event. In early December 2020, we will also begin selling select Freak Plants regularly out of our gallery space.




All plants were personally cultivated from non-GMO seed in limited quantities and have been grown organically.

Plants will not be sold but will be exchanged for fixed donations to support our operating costs.
