Our Seed Sharing Station

Posted by LizM - Site Moderator on November 11, 2013 at 5:00pm 0 Comments

We built this in cooperation with our local thrift store - Jacob's Dream. Food security is becoming a critical pressing issue as food benefits are being drastically cut across the country.

In this blog she covers what we need to get sustainability working in our neighborhoods. It's going to take more than canning, kale and clotheslines. It's going to take getting involved at the municipal level as an organized group and at a national level. Many of the things that make living in the burbs potentially sustainable - are actually illegal at this time.…
