Most of all, we need you to join the forming collective. "La Semilla" will be run by an all volunteer collective, so we are counting on you to help out or sign up to make a one time or monthly donation to this project.
We are also organizing a Grand Opening Party & Benefit show sometime around Saturday, July 15th. If you are a performance artist and would like to play, please write to us.
