Hello tcarlson & SuspiraDeProfundis11h
The home gardening movement now is growing like kudzu. What is key is getting neighbors TOGETHER to educate and help each other. For food gardening but also for other kinds of mutual aid. ALL skills and interests.
For 4 years I ran "Neighborhood Vegetables" in Berkeley and Oakland.
Here's our leaflet and our sign-up form.
We Can Grow Food and Community
Here Where we Live
Back Yards, Front Yards, Empty Lots.
If you need help in your garden
We can arrange a volunteer
GARDEN WORK PARTY
Expert advice and perhaps a steady helper
As food prices rise,
We can grow our own good food,
IF WE COOPERATE
NEIGHBOR TO NEIGHBOR
With our skills, land and labor.
Whether or not you have a yard,
We can garden together
If you are interested, call
510-652-7442, or write
Tell us where you live so we can connect you.
Include phone & email
level of garden skill, if you have a yard,
And if you need garden help.
