What's are the goals of this group--just curious
- on June 28, 2010
Hi, It looks like Eileen Horn started this group, presumably as a member of the DCFPC, right? We have lots of things to participate in, that I'm aware of: the Rolling Prairie Farmer's alliance, various gardening clubs, a seed saver's exchange, the Farmer's market, the Community Mercantile Food coop, gardens at various schools, and the like. So I was wondering what you had in mind with this 'commons?" Some possibilities include, I suppose: -announcements of gardening club events -Farmer's Market schedules, and perhaps some profiles of producers? -What's in season and who locally is selling it (i.e. some grocers buy locally, so we could highlight that when it happens) -classes at the Merc, Douglas County Extension, JCCC sustainable farming certification, permaculture group, etc. about food growing, processing, storing and the like;
Are these kinds of things what you had in mind?
Or is this more specific to your organization's activities only? I'm certainly interested in such a group and am not familiar with the DCFPC other that what is posted in your sidebar.
Thanks for your time, Ken
