The exhibit will include a “farmstand” where visitors make their own determination of the value of the microgreens grown in the gallery and may choose an urban agriculture non-profit to receive their donation. They may then keep the greens or have them sent to a local food pantry. Fittingly, project materials have been contributed or bartered from companies such as Pegasus Lighting , High Mowing Seeds , and Organic Mechanics Soil Company .
In keeping with the participatory nature of the project, the Brooklyn artist has a Kickstarter campaign , allowing backers to take part in the exhibit or get their own microgreens start-up kit. Spevack’s Kickstarter campaign runs through April 1, and the exhibit opens at Mixed Greens (531 West 26th Street) on May 3, on view through June 2, 2012.
