    I recently got a fellowship with the North West Area Quality of Life. My job, looking into food access issues and solutions. Go figure! I've found sites to install food forests and I'm looking into creating a food co-op, more community gardens and cooking and canning classes. I've found some grants to apply for once I have a solid plan in place. Fun, but scary!

    Still clearing brush from the community garden. I'm hoping that the plants and materials will be delivered this week. I have a bad feeling that I'm becoming the neighborhood babysitter!

    I got more chicks a couple of weeks ago and my brother built a top bar beehive for me. The city gave me a grant to start a community garden. I plan to focus on the neighborhood kids and their families. The minimum goal is to raise 300 pounds of produce and give away 150 pounds of that. This will be quite exciting and somewhat scary!

    Congratulations on Farmer of the Day. I agree with your statement about how little kids know about food sources. Communities are working harder at education and gardening in schools and neighborhoods now. I am glad.
