Adam Purple (rev. les ego) was a social activist, philosopher, and urban gardener/revolutionary. He created the world-famous eARThWORK, "The Garden of Eden," which flourished on Manhattan’s Lower East Side from 1975-1986. He was a pioneering ecological/environmental artist who lived his values: a vegan, composting and recycling his waste, refusing to wear leather, traveling by bicycle rather than by car, and rejecting the "infernal" combustion engine.
Adam will be buried according to his wishes at Greensprings Natural Burial Preserve. (naturalburial.org). He spent his life as an activist for sustainability, living sustainably himself. As such, he did not spend his life accumulating assets. It is up to us, his friends and those whose lives he enriched, to ensure that he has the final resting place that he wanted and believed in. We would also like to erect a permanent memorial on the Lower East Side where people can meditate, congregate, and remember Adam and what he stood for. On behalf of Adam, thank you for your generosity!
