I have just moved to Princeton from a one-bedroom, urban apartment. Now I have 2.25 acres and an insane ambition.
I have dozens of varieties of vegetable, flower and herb seeds on the way; about a dozen or so fruit trees (all the usual suspects plus a few trendier ones like medlar and quince); and more berry bushes than I can count. There will be chickens. There will be mushroom logs. There will be bees.
Way more than one girl can do on her own.
My vision is this: we garden together, at my house. We garden together at your house, too. A whole group of us, bonding over shared work. Then we gather around a fire, under the stars, to rest our bones. Then we do it again. We watch our hard work grow. We all share in the bounty. Maybe we even cook and can and ferment together. Think of it as a CSA, only created with the love and sweat of a whole community.
In lieu of that, it would be fun just to get together with other folks who are passionate about gardening, health and knowing where their food comes from.
Although not necessary, you might be someone who cares about the relationship between our species, our gardens, and nature. You might have an interest in organic gardening, permaculture, or homesteading. Or maybe you just like to eat really fresh, really good food!
