The event on Friday evening was possible in part due to Power in Dirt's efforts! The event was held on an adopted vacant lot on the 1700 blk of Barclay. We were so excited to be at the event, and we had a lot of fun and met many wonderful people!
Executive Director of Station North Arts District Ben Stone introduced the event and some of the artists present at the event. After, our own Power in Dirt VISTA Anna Evans-Goldstein got up on stage to explain how if we can re-imagine a vacant lot (or an empty wall?) as a positive space for creation instead of a negative eyesore in our community by adopting it and turning into a green space - well then Baltimore will be a beautiful city and a leader in neighborhood revitalization!

The crowd is forming...
A wonderful community garden on the other side of some trees from the adopted lot that held the event
They even have a chicken coop! The City recently have written into the new zoning code regulations about owning chickens in the City - so cool!
Everyone excited for the music to start! Mark Brown, Scottie B, and Dan Deacon played!
Hanging out before the dancing begins!
Boy, what a crowd!
Thanks a lot!
