VV presents a presentation on this exciting initiative that any neighbourhood or neighbourhood village can do.
The idea is simple: invite everyone from both sides of two city blocks to come to a meeting about helping each other grow more food. Some people have tools, others have knowledge of starting plants from seed, others are experts in garden bed preparation and with many hands, the work is fun.
Join Kate and Julia for slides and thoughts on how to replicate/adapt this very simple model.
