About Sustainable Neighbors

Dear Neighbor,
In the old days, my Grandfather would gather together with local farmers in a social network to learn from each other, share resources and support one another in the life of the farming community. They would celebrate together in abundance, as well as, solved problems together in hard times. They helped one another “raise a barn” then have a “barn dance”!

In like manner the Sustainable Neighbors is in the same spirit of community, to share sustainable skills, resources and support for backyard gardeners and our local farmers. We are promoting the new victory garden, local food movement in our neighborhoods through education in organic gardening methods and workshops in sustainable living to help secure a healthy, vibrant future for our community. We are building Victory Villages in our neighborhoods where people know their neighbors, build relationships while sharing skills and knowledge to help each other grow gardens or other sustainable activities.

See this YouTube video:

Our intention for this network is to share experiences and inspiration around the seasons in the garden. This project is intended to be fun, inviting and inspiring by sharing our resources, through family friendly gatherings, in workshops and demonstrations and just neighbors helping neighbors. Let us know what you are doing in the garden, what you would like to learn and what skills you would like to share. Please join us!

You can access all the Sustainable Neighbors information at:
You can join the group for free and be sure to check out the “Discussion” and “Calendar” tabs to see the resources, activities and to add your own experiences, ideas and referrals!

Working together with you for a brighter food future!
