Photos: Seventeen Hundred Seeds

Seventeen Hundred Seeds, the farming-as-art project on West Davis at Van Buren opened Saturday. Bolsa Mercado provided sunflower-themed snacks and neighbors showed up with kiddos, dogs and picnics.

The project, from Cynthia Mulcahy and Robert Hamilton of Oak Cliff, is intended to bring the community together.

Courtney Rainwater underwrote the project, and she even drove to five Home Depot stores on planting day in March to buy dozens of seed packets. Rick Garza owns the land. Juan Pablo Segura of Familia Auto Sales is providing all the water.

Here are our pictures from Saturday.

    I love that we have such innovative people living in the OC and doing things like this.  Cynthia does these great projects such as the art project of square dancing last year that now is popping up all over.  She is a foreseer who can look to the past and share with the future.   Can’t wait to see what she pulls out of her hat next.
