"Only an hour away from Bountiful Gardens?  I'm jealous!  Have fun with those carrots, I grew a colorful mix of them last year and our family had a lot of fun pulling the yellow, white, orange, and purple treasures out of the ground. "

"I am looking forward to buying from Bountiful Gardens for the first time this year.  I'm pretty lucky... I live only an hour away from them, so I can order, and then drive over and pick them up instead of waiting for the mail.  I did…"

Gardening Experience
a few seasons
Gardening Philosophy and Preferred Methods:
When neighbors coordinate their crop rotations and orchard plantings, we get more diversity and healthier soil! Most vegetable gardeners (even dabblers) grow more food than they can eat, but harvesting and distributing the excess takes more energy than they have. In addition, most people have no idea how much fresh food can be harvested during the winter, here in Eugene! We need to get together to maximize productivity and distribute all this beautiful food while it's fresh!
Skills and Tools I can share:
Once I have my own yard under control (I know... I'm dreaming...), I would like to start growing food in other people's yards. In exchange for letting me use their land, they would be enjoy fresh vegetables year 'round. I would like to sell and give away the surplus. The idea is, eventually, to create a locally owned, operated and supported CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) that also provides support for the financially stressed, elderly and disabled people in our neighborhood. I possess a great deal of book knowledge about growing vegetables, soil health and permaculture, but still consider myself a novice in all these areas. I am still learning about growing vegetables in my new bioregion (Eugene, OR). I am developing a plants database and a crop rotation plan that I plan to share with other gardeners when it's "good enough." I am a certified Permaculture Designer and have completed the Master Gardener and Master Food Preserver trainings with Lane County Extension. Maybe when I've been gardening for 20 years I'll call myself a Master Gardener. Visit my website: www.suburbanecovillage.org

Everyone knows the Neighborhood Watch Program targets crime by raising awareness, preparedness and vigilance, but did you know it can also build stronger community on all levels? A recently convened group in my neighborhood has already spawned a gardening group, a barter/trade group and a Ning website where members can share information either with the whole network or with people who share their specific interests. The group has already planned monthly meetings that will include potlucks,… Continue

Hi, Denise. I planted those poppy seeds that you gave me and they have grown very well, despite being placed in a rough spot, and are about to bloom. I was wondering if you know what species of poppy they are - their blue-green, wavy leaves look much different than the poppies I've seen for sale around town, and I've become very curious about them.

Also, how's your garden coming along this year? We've expanded ours a lot, and, as you've probably seen from the pictures I posted, we now have chickens! Thanks for all of your inspiration, hope to see you at this year's seed swap!

Hey, lots of weeds are edible! :-)

I believe there will be a seed swap coming up soon.

I will post info.

Thanks for the friend add. I look forward to gleening some information so I can grow something besides weeds.

Thanks for the information and cheer. I will stay a lurker for now hoping to be energized by all of you.

Sure. Thanks for starting the group. I think Paula has been getting a yardsharing group going in her part of town, although like ours only a part of the group is on Hyperlocavore. It seems like for some of us the site makes the idea of yardsharing legitimate which allows us to talk to friends and neighbors about sharing yards.

I believe it was Prego that mentioned it (at Urban Permaculture). Since my time is so limited right now, where is the best place for me to go to read about all that you are involved with and stand for. "Peace" is a broad topic and obviously gardening is a big part . . . .

Hi Denise,
Ken here (from Dayton). Just joined the hyperlocavore site and wanted to say high on your group. My photo is a portion from one picking from my backyard garden which only has 750 sq ft of greens. That is one reason I am so excited about starting the farm here. I posted my article on Kale and a revision of my article on Organic Weed Free on the blog section.
Take care!

4th grade update, Denise: They've completed a nice 4x8x1 pilot raised bed of donated materials,set within a S. facing, fenced memorial park area adjacent to the K classrooms & the dist. is extending the drip system to water it automatically in NV summer heat :) Knocked down corrigated cardboard was placed on the grass first, then 3" of fine playground gravel for drainage and to hold it in place. Local Rite Aid, Hardware, and Garden business are donating soil. Students started some seedlings, and other (everbearing strawberries, melon, tomato are being donated) w/ large, recycled nursery tree pots holding the "overflow." A highlight is the HS FFA president coming to celebrate! Two nearby single moms are overseeing students' summer care, keeping track of produce harvested, and using it to feed their their families =)

thanks for the advice about setting up expectations. I actually have someone coming from Victory Gardens to peek at the space and see what they can use. After that, I'll have a better idea of what I'm looking for from others.

Thanks for setting up the group, Denise! Now I'll pass on the information and hope to find some takers!
