GARDENING MEET-UPS ~ Hi everyone, it's Ann -your local Seed-lady. We've been talking about cultivating some new gardeners in the area. I love everything about the promotion of food self sufficiency. If you have a backyard, a patio, or even a pot you can place by the window, then you are a perfect candidate. Throughout the year we intend to have monthly get-togethers to sort seeds, plan your gardens, plant seedlings, exchange seedlings/plants, discuss garden issues & solutions, veggie/fruit exchanges, canning workshop, recipe swap, and seed harvestings. Yes, the fun goes on year round! I would like to start with a meeting in February at our meeting place on Cedar. I have loads of seeds many of which are still on stalks or in pods. I plan to sort them out and package them in envelopes to distribute to people. For those who have never done this before, it's interesting to see how it is done, and to discover how different seeds look like. For those who know, you can help share your knowledge. I will bring all of the seeds I need to process. If you have seeds of your own, you can bring them and we can process them too. You are all welcome to take packets of my seeds home with you. Please let me know who all is interested, and we will figure out a date that works. I'm thinking maybe the 24th or 25th of February. Does anyone know how we reserve the room on Cedar?

Yes. I coordinate the 4200 Cedar location with Dave, the property manager, using the Support Volunteer Program. We can, and should add more monthly meetings there but to balance the relationship with the property owner we'll need to provide more services like painting the conference room, and organizing a monthly floor cleaning (strip, wax, and buff). On the subject of food, if the growers were to bring their produce to the meeting to share with the property manager I think it would go a long way towards balancing the relationship. Here is a video that explains the SVP and the relationship between Ubuntu and 4200 Cedar. https://youtu.be/vuVZUXuSlzw/…

I'll be there - thanks Ann for taking the initiative to get this started. I'll be asking around to find other people to invite as well. Becoming independent and self-sufficient on food is the perfect first step down the road toward human prosperity. I suspect this will catch on and lots of people will be there. Would you like to start a Meetup? You can find the icon in the top left corner of this page. If you have any questions, email me at [email protected]
