Community Mural: Love Notes to GRuB
Two local artists, Darishma Alphonse and Carrie Zeigler, co-designed a permanent, multicultural community mural project called Love Notes to GRuB. Beginning at GRuB's birthday celebration in July and ending just before our Harvest Soiree in September, ~250 GRuB community members and partners (near and far) helped create this collaborative mural that was installed on the sliding doors at the back of the GRuB farmhouse. The mural includes 20 native plants from the region, one for each year of GRuB’s history. The overall design reflects the colors of the rainbow and a plant's chakra system, in turn reflecting our own balancing of chakras as found in holistic health systems of India. It also symbolizes 20 years of GRuB’s deep roots in our community and our commitment to grow and evolve.
