Here's an idea that would generate coverage, and would be fun for Orgami Usa participants
Grow Orgami in Treepits
On 27th St FIT has numerous treepits. Trees grow in these but no vegetation.
How about growing Orgami in them for the weekend of the event.
Two years ago duruing Orgami USA i did something similar at one treepit on 26th and 8th and the Orgami USA people really enjoyed it.
