Guerilla Gardening Party 

When: Thu., Oct. 9, 5-9 p.m. 2008
Phone: (843) 720-8675
On Thursday night, you won't be seeing folks creeping around Elliottborough dressed all in black. Or in gorilla suits, for that matter. The Guerilla Gardening Party will be a civilized, law-abiding affair hosted by A New Leaf Studio, intended to beautify the Spring Street area around the shop. The guerilla gardening movement took off in London a few years ago, when people would go around less attractive parts of the city, spraying seeds and planting flowers. The movement has spread stateside, and now A New Leaf owner Annie Mueller is pioneering the concept in Charleston - just in time to celebrate the shop's one year anniversary, and to unofficially kick off the Charleston Garden Festival (Oct. 17-19). "I hope that this party will allow my guests to appreciate the powerful impression that a green space can make on an urban area - and also show them that green gardening can be great fun," Mueller says. Party guests will spruce up plant wells - now essentially used as ash trays - along Spring Street, planting perennials and bulbs for next spring. The reward for getting your hands dirty, besides the gratification of beautification? Refreshments from Oak Steakhouse. Space is limited so be sure to RSVP. -Erica Jackson
