Sebastopol's First Annual Village Building Convergence
...including the design and creation of an actual Fairie Village among an urban grove of lovely coastal cedar trees! Here's a peek a the creativity and imagination found in almost 40 tiny fairie homes!
In addition to the imaginative and kid-friendly Fairie Village, the Sebastopol VBC featured more than 15 outdoor projects and installations! These included the most urban street paintings we've ever seen. The whole assemblage was more than 800 feet long, with a fiercely beautiful "Spirit Bird" and a giant "Spirit Wolf's Head," both made of combinations of elements, animals, fruits and vegetables grown locally. There were also a plethora of animal tracks all across the streets in every direction, and a huge school of triumphant salmon swimming against car traffic! Other projects included permaculture installations of every sort! Amazing and inspiring!
During the Village Building Convergence in Sebastopol, there were tours of various unique and inspiring aspects of this small California town. This particular neighborhood was among the most inspiring of the places we visited in Sebastopol. A beloved, internationally-acclaimed sculptor named Patrick Amiot has been offering his work to dozens of neighbors up and down his own street, and now Florence Avenue is one of the most amazing streets in this galaxy! They are masterful, inspiring, and hilarious!
