Victory Gardens & Db+P Party 2009! from Db+P, Architects on Vimeo.

Victory Gardens goes all-out!

People enjoyed the warm glow of giving at our Victory Gardens fundraiser.

Thanks to all who came out on Friday, April 24, to the DBA office to support Victory Gardens. We raised nearly $5,000 for Victory Gardens, a project of Garden for the Environment that plants vegetable plots in yards and lots around San Francisco, putting food at city-dwellers' fingertips. Thanks to everyone who donated, mixed, and mingled for making it a great party!

<em>Victory Gardens 2007+</em> is part of the 1 Artist 1 Concept book series.

Extra thanks to the Squirrelly Stringband for marvelous music, Let's Be Frank for gourmet hot dogs, local makers 21st Amendment Brewery and CrushPad for fine beer and wine, and Elbow Grease Designs, Blue Chair Fruit Company, Sunnyside Organics, and Noe Valley Apiaries for gardeny-goods browse and buy in support of this great cause!  Massive appreciation to SFBC Bike Valet--we couldn't do it without you!
