What we're about

Kent Ohio Food Not Lawns is dedicated to encouraging individuals to produce food for themselves, their families, and others. We work together in the community to swap seeds, plants, food, advice, techniques, chores, and stories. Regular meetings are scheduled, including seed swaps, food swaps, classes, farm tours, garden tours, lawn conversions, picnics, discussions, and community projects. Hopefully everyone can bring something to the table and fun can be had by all.

Please check out Food Not Lawns International (http://www.foodnotlawns.com/) and read the book Food Not Lawns by H. C. Flores (http://www.amazon.com/Food-Not-Lawns-Neighborhood-Community/dp/193339207X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1386871759&sr=1-1&keywords=food+not+lawns) for more information on the group's inspiration.

Early this spring a few of us went to the orchard to teach us basic apple tree pruning. Now we should enjoy the fruits of our work. come enjoy an afternoon of apple picking and company with fellow homesteaders, permaculturists, and garden growers. Picking a bushel of apples is only $15.00 that is around 30 cents a pound. you will get around 48 pounds in the bushel. That is around 126 medium sized apples. You can can. freeze. cook or just eat your selections. We will have the picnic area behind the storefront to enjoy a potluck meal and a lot of conversation.
