Travels and Timelines
We have 10 days left and a whopping $4,405 to go!
Please help us out by spreading the word, let people know that you donated and that you believe in the work we do, the food we share, and the community we build. Collectively, you are all our best resource, word of mouth is the way we find new trees to harvest, meet folks who want to garden, and get the word out to garner support to keep the organization going. Thanks for all your help!
Again, just to make it easy on you, here's the link!
For more news, I just got back from a whirlwind cross country drive with Case, our summer program assistant, as he was heading home to Columbus, OH after finishing up his year of service with LVC. We thought this was a great opportunity to check out a small, small taste of other urban agriculture, food justice, and just good old fashioned home food gardening that's going on outside of the amazing little bubble of action in the bay area.
It was a brief but jam packed and wholly inspiring trip, and I've been slowly but surely processing all the amazing things we saw and gathering all the thoughts and images into posts on our news and events blog. So far there are posts up for:
and soon to be posts on Little Rock, AK, Liberty, TN, and Columbus, OH, which you can check back for towards the end of the weekend. I feel somewhat overwhelmed by the whole experience, especially by knowing that we were really just scratching the surface of all the awesome projects that are happening across this country (let alone across the world!).
Here are a few pictures from the trip just to give you a little taste!
All my best,
