Planting Communities is a non-profit organization that is helping the community of Woodburn enhance its ability to grow their own food, as well as provide a way to fight hunger and increase education about environmental justice issues.
Found this video on ted.com not too long ago. I thought I would share it with everyone. Gives me inspiration, a dream and vision for some of the work Planting Communities could do for our own town.
Enjoy and see you in the gardens.
PS. Stay tuned for volunteer opportunities. Coming soon!
Hello everyone! With the rains upon us we just wanted to remind people about rain gardens. Not only is it another form of building community but rain gardens can also help revive local aquafers, help bring back native plants and provide multi-functional uses for the fauna and the family. Here is a link to an app that iPhone users can use to help with this process, http://researchmatters.noaa.gov/news/Pages/raingardenapp.aspx. As of now, none of us have personally used this app, but please let us know your thoughts. Happy gardening!
