So we’ve gotten quite a few responses to our original communication offering the use of yards and gardens. We really appreciate the support and we’re looking forward to exploring the various yards you’ve offered to us. We’d like to take a minute to spell out exactly what it is we are looking for, what we are offering, etc.
Foremost we want to grow food. We’re currently using 3 different locations actively, and we have definite plans to start cultivating a fourth once the weather permits. . We intend to use these four locations as our primary growing sites for our for-sale produce.
The second configuration, which we’re also very excited about, is helping people start their own gardens. We’ve started on our first “edible landscaping” project at a home in Five Points, and another towards Apex. We’re eager to find other landscaping gigs to incorporate sustainable agriculture practices into everyday landscapes.
Stay in touch! We’ll do our best to keep the blog updated.
