Food Oasis Project

https://www.facebook.com/foodoasisproject

So this is a new project I’m working on with a handful of other people in the area.    The point is to help people start community gardens and turn unusued/under-utilized space into productive land, especially in areas where access to healthy options is limited (“food deserts”).   I’m pretty excited about this project and so far it’s off to a good start.    I’m not sure if I should spill out a lot of details before they really come to fruition, but we’ve got a project under way with one community center near me on revamping their community garden, our foot in the door for a project at a prominent local institution either this fall or next year and talking to some enthusiastic folks at another local institution which could be a big project.    We’re also making a ton of great contacts around the community.    It’s starting to look like a lot of good things can come out of this and I’ll be sure to share.
