“Food and Flowers” Program

TransPonder is partnering with Pierce Street Gardens to offer TBIPOC, BIPOC, and trans/gender diverse folx access to vegetable and flower plants to feed our bodies and souls.

Go to Pierce Street Gardens (2008 Pierce Street in Eugene), give them your name and email, tell them you are a part of TransPonder’s food and flower program, and get up to $25 per person of food and flower plants. ⁣

There is limited funding for the program, so take what would really serve your well-being, and what is left will be a gift for the next person. This program will continue until we are out of funds. ⁣

Pierce Street Gardens is open Thursday through Monday 10 AM to 5 PM (they are closed Tuesday and Wednesday).

Eugene BIPOC Art Collective

Eugene BIPOC Artist Collective was created to elevate and support local BIPOC artists. What does this mean? This means the group works to highlight the voices and visions of local BIPOC artists through connecting them to spaces, funds, and other resources in the Eugene area. [White allies and artists are encouraged to get involved—not to pursue their own art projects or visions, but rather to support the efforts of BIPOC artists telling their own stories.]
