it's a natural fit to my general lifestyle,principles,ethics and joys.
i have not, the cash outlay has been an obstacle.
organizing a garden-share/coop,csa,urban farm of sorts. propagating plants for replanting and sale/barter.saving seed for replanting and guerrilla gardening. hosting a monthly vegan garen-potluck for the past 2 years. offering workshops on relevant/related subjects , bartering for services/items, pooling/sharing resources with friends, salvaging waste materials for re-purposing. Milling fallen trees in my neighborhood into high grade specialty lumber for my flutes,furniture and other craftworks
educational resources:youtube, permies forums, library, kindle books, torrents. permacultureglobal map. Free material resources: local cafe (coffee grinds/burlap bags),local raw-food restaurant (fresh kitchen scraps for my worm-farm) local stables (horse manure/bedding) industrial parks (clean pallets) local tree-service (timber logs and loads of woodchips) neighbor's landscaper (truckloads of grass clippings/leaves) Craigslist (virtually anything!)
issues that can be felt in a tangible way interest me most, and ones in which people can have a vested interest in.
I'm just outside of NYC in nassau county,long island. I started a garden-share at our home a few years ago. Baldwin Organic Garden Share. www.facebook.com/bogs11510
