  • Hi everyone!

    Because this group is just beginning, we will need time to discuss and develop our goals, our resources and our practices. For this, I am starting a couple forums/discussions, under the "Message Board" tab.

    I am hoping that while we do this - over the next couple of weeks - that everybody can start on our first project. And that is.... start observing. In your own neighborhood, and the neighborhoods surrounding yours. Start recording the addresses of neighbors with an abundance of fruit. Look at vacant properties, at public areas such as street medians and untended city lots. Right now we want to be on lookout for apples, pears, citrus, rose hips, quince.

    I am going to put up a map for us to use, and as we start to map out some hot-spots we will start making contact.

    On the foraging side of things, I am currently doing research on the best local parks to start with, and for what, and would be very open to suggestions for our first forage.
