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?
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.
Hi Liz, I meant to join the Triad Group for Hyperlocavore in the hopes that there might be some folks in my area, but I don't know what happened and I'm not really understanding how to find people based on geographic area.
Got it Liz - thanks for following up. :-) I mentioned you in the FoodWired Top Ten last week, but want to use the site and get to know it a bit better so I can do a more in-depth follow up. I donated my front yard to a CSA this year just one block away from my house so folks get fresh-picked, naturally-grown kale and romaine just hours out of the ground each week. And I get an expert who maintains my garden and gives me fresh veggies every week in exchange. When I tell my friends about this, most of them only have one thing to say..."where can I sign up?" Now I tell them HyperLocavore. :-)
Great idea about posting fliers around my neighborhood looking for garden space. For right now I am using up my back patio and have put plants in containers. Yesterday I bought two more strawberry plants, and 3 small acorn squash, they will all go large containers.
Thank you for the e-mail Liz, I am here and wanting to participate but am out of the country at the moment. My cousins are minding my garden whilst I'm away. Will hop on the discussion bandwagon when I return next week.
