Anna Margit – St. John Mckay: We’re Planting Sunflowers, Could You Please Help Us?
If you’re feeling like a little civil disobedience, but aren’t quite ready to take it off Facebook, you’re in luck! Virtually follow us out on the streets of the 8th district for an uprising — of sunflower plants! As we take over little unmanaged sidewalk plots for planting sunflower seeds, feel good knowing you’re sticking-it-to-the-man from your couch. Get fired up in your kitchen or bathroom, as we recruit locals walking by and instantly turn them into fellow members of the civil unrest, all with a handful of seeds, a little shovel, and a watering can. Then remain impassioned while lying in bed by the sight of a transformed landscape totally unsanctioned by the powers of officialdom* (*in about 3 months for full bloom, give or take a week). It’s big, beautiful, multi-colored plants vs sidewalks, all happening on your glowing screen.
Let’s set a green fire to the neighborhood and yellow the streets, one little brown rectangle at a time — ‘Power to the Sunflower!’
