@hyperlocavore67 Halfway, Oregon
Owner hyperlocavore.com a yardsharing community - working to repair our neighborhoods block by block.
Foodie, gardener, crafty nerd and hot-headed ginger.


I am the creator and moderator of hyperlocavore. I am here to help you get in touch with like minded people who are hoping to set up a yard sharing arrangement, a group garden, a neighborhood produce exchange or a urban CSA of linked yards, or your existing CSA farm! We also want to support your efforts as a group via tools to organize, hold events, plan your gardens. So please join us and visit often!

After 25 years in the tech field as a web strategist for non-profits and user interface specialist, I’ve moved to the country. I am a farm nerd, and geek I must. I started Hyperlocavore - A Free Yard Sharing Community to encourage people to grow food with their friends, family and neighbors. It’s a social networked yard sharing community dedicated to help you build resilience in your neighborhood. I’m blogging here about the experience of building the site, helping communities and all the things I will be doing at the farm where I live in very rural Eastern Oregon.

Remember - There's only two things that money can't buy, that's true love and homegrown tomatoes!

Happy Growing!

LizM

Hey there,

I am not there now but keep going back and I wanted to see what kind of action in the garden world goes on there. We have land and an irrigation share. Someday...

No worries.  Thanks.

I don't think I got the welcome message.  At least not in my email inbox.  I feel welcome though ;).

Hi Liz, glad you have time to spend time in the garden. I'm thinking of adding a new group, gardening for diabetics. One of the problems I see with people with diabetes is the lack of fresh vegies in their diets. Many do not understand the relationship between what they eat and glycemic control. In this area of the country diabetes is rampant. What do you think?

Hi - Thanks for the warm welcome for me and my beard.  Looking forward to linking up here and with local groups.  Ojai is a small town with lots of progressive people.

At 12:34pm on February 25, 2012, Mrs. Germaine Jenkins said…

Thanks so much Liz for the shout out. I'd don't know about the rest of my fellow Hyperlocavores, but I don't feel right unless I require chiropractic care after working in a garden:) Gotta rethink my best laid spring garden plans given we practically had no winter to speak of in Charleston.

Has unseasonable weather impacted anyone else?

Germaine

No worries, Liz. It was most definitely bedtime!

Sharon Astyk and the Right to Live Sustainably

Posted on November 15, 2013 at 8:00pm 0 Comments

Sharon Astyk is one of my favorite thinkers on resilience and sustainability. She brings it down to the ground where it belongs. 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.…

Waste to Treasure...

Posted on November 11, 2013 at 5:00pm 0 Comments

I'm not good at letting stuff go...or sending it to the dump. I wouldn't call myself a hoarder but I am exceedingly thrifty. This habit of wringing the last bit of value out of things, of waiting patiently for what I need to arrive started after reading Your Money or Your Life by Vicki Robin and Joe Dominguez. It's probably in the list top five most books which impressed me the most. It was a life changing read and I highly recommend it!…

Our Seed Sharing Station

Posted 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.

The people affected by these cuts are predominantly children, the elderly, veterans and people with disabilities.

One of the ways we can all help is to grow more food to share with food banks and our neighbors.

Seed sharing helps us grow more.

It's very easy to set one up. Find…

SFG Guru Mel Bartholomew answers my question about peat moss sustainability.

Posted on September 19, 2012 at 3:17pm 0 Comments

I got to ask Mel Bartholomew father of the Square Foot Gardening method what he thought about the issues some people see around peat moss. I learned a bit - enjoy http://www.melbartholomew.com/whats-up-with-peat-moss/

Are you a Square Foot Gardener? What's your experience? How many beds do you have and what do you grow?
