Refuel + Cultivate: Urban Sips & Garden Tips

Sustainable living, a mission The San Diego Air & Space Museum is dedicated to spreading awareness. Over the last year the museum had a vision of implementing an edible garden in the Pavilion of Flight. This garden would serve as a learning tool and a visual to show our community that sustainable living is possible even in the most unique situations.  Under the direction of Tina @tinagrowsthings, Airam @itsthymetogarden, Cass @gardentotablewithcass and @sandiegoseedswap afternoon crew of volunteers, the museum’s vision came to fruition. With a thriving garden in place we felt the need to celebrate! The Museum will be hosting a special “Refuel + Cultivate: Urban Sips & Garden Tips” experience on Friday, Oct. 8th from 6:30 to 10:00 p.m. in the Museum’s Pavilion of Flight.

The Museum is partnering with Epic Gardening and Feeding San Diego (“Ending Hunger Through Food Rescue”) for this one-of-a-kind event. Learn more at @epicgardening and @feedingsandiego.


Kevin Espiritu created Epic Gardening to help teach 10,000,000 people how to grow anything, no matter where they live in the world. Kevin author of Grow Bag Gardening will be planted right in the mix of it all ready to personally autograph your copy of his latest bestselling book & maybe a tip or two on growing your #greenthumb.

Grow Bag Gardening: The revolutionary way to grow bountiful vegetables, herbs, fruits, and flowers in lightweight, eco-friendly fabric pots.

Let’s Cross Out Hunger. People facing hunger often have to choose between food and other essentials such as medicine, housing and transportation. Food shouldn’t be an impossible choice. The San Diego Air & Space Museum is donating a portion of the proceeds for event ticket sales to benefit Feeding San Diego’s mission to Cross Out Hunger!

Guests will enjoy craft cocktails and connecting with the San Diego Makers supporting our gardening community. Experience a great opportunity to shop local while sipping on garden inspired cocktails and sampling small bites while traveling through time exploring in the Museum’s Space exhibit and galleries.

Four Garden-inspired cocktails will include a Basil Refresher, Lavender Martini, Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita and a Garden Lemonade. Family-friendly versions of each cocktail also will be available.
