Join the San Diego Architectural Foundation on November 4 when, with a whole lot of help from our friends - the Culy Warehouse downtown will be transformed into an enchanting Orchids & Onions wonderland!
Replete with yummy food and beverages, fab tunes, Silent Auction items from luxurious to functional (and lots of things in-between), and a room full of funtastic people...what better way to celebrate and contemplate our spaces? Let's come together and applaud the things that are being done oh-so-well, and address the things that, shall we say... could use some improvement.
The evening will highlight the 2010 O&O theme; Outlook: Opportunity!
and offer perspectives on ways in which we may
COLLABORATE, MOTIVATE, APPRECIATE & CELEBRATE!!

First Lady Michelle Obama tours New Roots Community Garden yesterday, winner of a Special Jury Mention Orchid in 2009:
"Located on a small 2.5 acre lot in City Heights, a grass roots effort has finally taken hold to create San Diego’s first community farm. One juror noted “Kudos to the groups’ collective perseverance in spending three years and over $50K in City of San Diego required permits and processing to get this project out of the ground”."
We're thrilled to see this beautiful community effort get the national recognition it so richly deserves!
