Happy summer everyone! All of us have favorite traditions this time of year: weekly visits to the farmers market, early morning garden-tending, post-swimming watermelon slices, grilling anything and everything. I hope you’re enjoying your summer – stop by and tell us about it some time! Here are a few highlights from recent activity on HOMEGROWN.org:
We’ve started a newbies group especially for those of us who are just taking the plunge into a more sustainable way of living. We know it can be a little overwhelming, so this is a great place to start.
Another way to start slow and easy is by visiting our HOMEGROWN 101 pages. Caroline just put together a terrific Composting 101 that will really get you headed in the right direction.
The member blogs are the place where folks can share their stories. HOMEGROWNer Zoubida has been learning more and more about state of the world and how folks have been inspired to make change. She has committed to writing a HOMEGROWN 101 called: “Canning for Food Security and Sustainability.” Join Zoubida with your thoughts.
I’ll leave you with a lovely video about the simple goodness of farmers – and the people who support them!
We’re up for visitors anytime, so don’t be shy!
