Yardsharing and Seed Angels - We need you!Fri, March 6, 2009 - 3:09 PM

We have a couple projects going that don't need funding - just participants!
The first is hyperlocavore.com. Hyperlocavore is a yardsharing community - built to support people in the practice of creating 'yardsharing' arrangements to grow food together.
Many people want to grow food but they lack one or two of these four things:
- physical strength
Forming a yardsharing group with your friends, neighbors, family or with your religious communities is easy - and free! You can set up a 'seeking yardshare' group for your area (like Chicago, South Side) or a private group for your own yardshare "Grandma's Backyard Garden"
CSAs are filling up fast. Community gardens have waiting lists. Food is getting more and more expensive.
Find some people and start growing together!
The other project we've started is The Great Let's Get Growing Seed Share.
We are asking experienced gardeners to become 'seed angels,' to adopt a newbie gardener and send them some garden seeds! I have sent four newbie gardeners enough seed that each of them will have huge beautiful edible gardens this summer. It's easy - it cost me less than 4 dollars to get four gardens going!
If you are an experienced gardener we need you to become a seed angel!
If you are a newbie food grower - sign up!
If you think these are good ideas please help us get the word out to your communities! Blog it, tweet it, share it!
