Spring is upon us and it’s time to get our hands dirty! GUI is back in the Abbey Bar hosting another fun-filled benefit show. We won’t let a pesky little thing like having a garden bulldozed by the city keep us down! Oh no! We’re pushing forward into what is shaping up to be an amazing new season of planting the seeds of sustainability in our fair city!

Green Urban Initiative (GUI) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to implementing sustainable living practices in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Our main focus is to establish a local network of small-scale community gardens, with additional efforts aimed at reducing waste and fostering communication about sustainable living practices in our beloved city.

GUI believes that it is our right – and responsibility – as human beings to ensure that the way we live allows ourselves and future generations to meet basic human needs, which requires mindful evaluation about how we go about meeting our immediate needs as well as how our decisions today affect the ability of our children and grandchildren to meet their needs. GUI believes that this responsiblity – and right – begins with each of us as individuals and extends into our families, communities, businesses and governments.

This benefit show will include performances by a number of talented musicians from the area including:

Eric Dietrick and his Sax

Mike Banks

Mojo Flamenco

Mountain Ride

The Greatest Funeral Ever 

The event will also feature guest speakers as well as dozens of raffle prizes! All proceeds from this event will benefit GUI and their ongoing mission of creating functional greenspace in the City of Harrisburg.
