Hi folks, check out this proejct going on in western mass! let's get the ball rolling up in maine!

Let's come together as a larger, national permaculture community to move this project into the spotlight!

KICKSTARTER PAGE: http://www.kickstarte...­

This project will...
create an edible, delicious and nutritious public landscape bursting with free food
build and remediate tired city soil
increase biodiversity and pollinator habitat
create community through design, maintenance, and harvest
work with local youth and elders throughout the process
and educate and empower folks along the way!

Beyond transforming our common spaces, we're hoping to start discussions about local food and economies. Having dozens of demonstration forest gardens around town will bring awareness, energy and enthusiasm about permaculture, community gardens and food systems out of folk's private backyards, and into the spaces we share. It will also showcase and popularize many common guilds and remediation methods that are applicable to common urban and suburban settings.

Thanks for your support! Please forward this widely!

Felix Lufkin & Help Yourself!

I've read about this, and it's a really great project. Something we could do here, to start small, would be to pick a neighborhood or two and graft scions from fruit bearing trees onto some of the crabapple trees that the city has planted by the streets. With the city's approval of course. I would think it would be better than all those crabapples that fall in the street and on the sidewalks. It could also be a doable project. Perhaps it could be done in conjunction with a tree grafting class in the spring. Doable, and trackable easily.
