Hey y’all, I’m working to rally all my fellow Houston hippie gardeners, to provide a regular supply of green growing joy, and since I work at The Yellow Cup on Washington ave,(and my boss wants us to “cultivate community” -his words- on his behalf) I figured why not make the cafe the city’s central meeting place for our local underground plant trade?
I’m not entirely sure if boss is cool with it- he’s “admittedly conservative” - so we have to be legit underground. But I’m more than willing to get fired by a capitalist for gifting plant joy ;)
Until further notice, the code word is “Lantanas like Santana” If we have plants, we’ll let you know; if it’s not a good time, ”the monstera is under the bed”
feel free to make requests here and we can work out meetups, or folks are welcome to come trade at the shop, Drop them off for later pickup, or meet new peeps in the safety of our security cameras and conveniently located police state.
some comrades and I are trying to put together pop shops to stave off the dine-in super spreader culture, so if anyone (artists, bakers, makers, entrepreneurs, yogis, growers, etc) wants to collaborate a showcase day, please reach out!
im willing to make pickup/deliveries for anyone without easy transportation or just generally lacking the time/effort/motivation to bring a plant in or pick a plant up. I already drive For Uber which is painfully unfulfilling; please give me a greater purpose for driving all over the city - atascocita to sugarland; Pasadena to katy.
before I go, I wanna thank everyone on here for making the effort to (read this goddamn novel of a post) enjoy plant life while we can, and spread the joy. Thanks to dj freedem for making this space for us; thanks for giving poor white hippies like me an achievable way to show our willingness to do something about this collective trauma and the bullshitshit we don’t even know we benefit from (yet); thanks to everyone for (normalizing) asking for what is needed and holding onto hope when the world feels so damned bleak. Let’s plant something forward and grow a greener future together! Okay, I’m done with the soap box now :D
