Visible Records, Broadway Street, Charlottesville, VA, USA
Visible Records! A wonderful place – as many fellow shredians can concur after last week’s trip. It’s a space for art, community organizing, localized social justice and special dirt beds for baby green things to grow…Yeah we’re talking about gardens!
Invisible Records has two gardens: one, Common Field, produces crops for the local Visions of Liberation Free Store, while their other plot, Solitary Gardens, is an offshoot of a nationally-known peaceful movement for prison abolition and redefinition. In these gardens, the plots are made to the exact size of a solitary confinement cell, and people who are currently imprisoned in solitary confinement can request what be grown in this (very small) plot. You can learn more about the movement at Visible Records or the Solitary Gardens movement at large.
This weekend Cam and Elli will be biking/carpooling down to stick our fingers into this lovely dirt and do some good work. Bike squad will meet a bit earlier at 9:35, and if you’d like to join but are lacking in either bike or helmet let us know in the questionnaire! Ofc, carpooling will also happen and there is no pressure to bike. We’ll aim to be back around 12 or 12:30pm.
Pleaseee bring layers for whatever weather and dirt may happen, and snackies for if ya get hungry. So we’ll meet at 9:35, make it down to Visible Records and be working from about 10 am to 12 pm and should be back no later than 12:30!
