Orchids, Onions & Opportunities Continues!

If you haven't visited the Orchids, Onions & Opportunities exhibit or website, there's still time! Of course, the website will remain up indefinitely so that we may continue the conversation about how we can better and more thoughtfully design and develop our region, but the exhibit's days are numbered - in fact, it was supposed to come down at the end of June, until our generous friends at OliverMcMillan offered to house it for awhile longer - so come check it out at 877 G Street while you still can, and let us know what you think!
