Project #3: Slow Rocket Urban Farm

"Although our primary day-to-day focus is growing veggies for you (and for us), we see our new little farm as having a large focus on events including acoustic music shows, readings, and video screenings (maybe your videos) on our big wall. While we’re set for all things acoustic, we do not own a video projector or a sound system. With the generous help of Sloup-goers, we would like to acquire these items and then invite you to hang out at the farm to watch films of all sorts while our chickens eat mosquitoes. We are particularly interested in including more imaginative films about food and farming, as opposed to the wonderful -- yet polemic -- documentaries that people often use to promote local and sustainable agriculture."

Thanks to an awesome friendly hungry crowd, the Sloup grant totalled $280 this month!

Special thanks to Heather Overby, who made the most amazing coconut curry a rainy night has ever beheld, and to Kimmy Wardenburg (with her mom, Mary!) for sharing her Fresh Bread project--this month's edible donations were especially beautiful, on top of tasty.

Next Sloup: May 23rd

Please email us your wildest project proposals--and ideas for soups and breads you'd like to give to Sloup!

Zero's Not My Hero: 5 Days Left to Apply for Sloup Grant #3

Hey. Sloup it to us. Quick and dirty. Give the easy application a shot and send it. By Saturday night. We're waiting.

Don't worry about who gets the kitty! Just put what you want to do out there. It'll feel way more possible after some soup and conversation.

Or consider the application an end unto itself, a statement of artistic desire. You've got a soup-eating audience.

And check it:

Kimmy Wardenburg prints promises on bread, and she's doing it live at Sloup! Then we eat it.
