Hunger Free North Dakota Garden Project!

I tend to focus on local-to-me garden projects, but with both TreeHugger and the BBC writing about North Dakota, I had to take a look.

Sami Grover at Treehugger notes, “the most powerful sustainability efforts are  those that reach beyond individual lifestyles, and into the realm of community identity and cultural change.” 

The Hunger Free North Dakota Garden Project concurs, and with a partnership that includes community gardeners, the Department of Agriculture, the Farmers Market and Grower’s Association, and others, it starts with the simple request for gardeners to grow an extra row of vegetables for those in need.  Last year, the project provided over 350,000 pounds of food to agencies that feed the hungry.

Seems like they are well on their way to changing their food culture!

You can check out Paul Adam’s BBC article and Grover’s Treehugger follow-up below.

#Volunteering at #Slow #Food NYC’s #Brooklyn #Farm

localme:

Yesterday, my friend Kent and I took many subway trains to Slow Food NYC’s farm in the neighborhood of Brownsville, Brooklyn. We were part of a large volunteer crew preparing the farm (also known as Ujima Garden) for the growing season. This summer, the farm will host 100 children who will learn about sustainable food by growing, harvesting, preparing, and eating it together. Here are some pics:

Sprout Robot! What a GREAT idea. You put in your zip code and it tells you what you should be planting that week and gives you instructions on how to do so - for BOTH patio gardens (hell yeah gardens in the city!) and lawn gardens. I wonder what my landlord would think about window gardens full of basil… mmMm basil.

I was at the Museum of Science and Industry Smart Home organic vegetable garden yesterday providing support for our great Cook County Extension Master Gardeners who plant and maintain the 1200 sq. ft. garden, 4 raised beds, 80 earthboxes, two beehives, an area of native plants and a rain garden. They also give tours of the garden every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Big thanks to Master Gardeners Donna Pochie, Nick Janakas, Jerry Hossli and Madiem Kawa who gave tours of the Smart Home garden and converted some of our earthboxes from cool season to warm season crops.

This is what community organizing looks like. 7 tons of soil brought to a roof with a bucket brigade of 60 hardworking volunteers.

Awesome Rooftop Brewery Container Garden | greenUPGRADER
“The Brooklyn brewery Sixpoint Craft Ales features damaged kegs and reclaimed bathtubs full of edibles like eggplants, strawberries, leafy greens, corn,  potatoes, and melons. But they go beyond growing their own. The brewery  has a rainwater catchment setup and also keeps chickens.”
I would eat here everyday if I could.I bet the food is amazing.

A little broccoli seedling drying off in the evening sun from the afternoon’s rain shower.

It was awesome to be greeted by so many seedlings at the garden today! I’ll share more later.
