Hi Donna!

Here's a vote back! What you are doing is awesome. In NYC, we have Greenmarkets and in just about every neighborhoow there's a community garden (esp. less affluent areas). The closest I've gotten to this is growing herbs on the windowsill in my office! Good luck with your projects!

Best,
Adria

Donna,

I agree with you, people need to be aware that one day we may live food shortages, and we need to produce near where we live, at least. And with quality. Thank you for your vote, I am giving back by voting on your project.

Hi Donna,
I follow people like Linda and vote for people that she votes for, then ask that they return the favor. I try to vote at least three times daily. It adds up. And anytime that you send a mass email from your email contacts through crowdrise, you are given an additional 500 points. Good luck and I hope this helps.

Donna Founder/Director Long Beach Grows
Long Beach, CA United States
CROWDRISING SINCE: Dec 30, 2011
Stuff About Me:

I am a mother, a wife, an educator, scientist, community gardener, urban farmer, & practitioner of nourishing traditions that include urban agriculture as part of my back to the basics philosophy of feeding & nurturing my family. When I have time, I make my own cheese, sauerkraut, & kimchi.

I am also a community organizer of sorts, having mobilized support for my pro-urban agriculture petition & presented before various committees of Long Beach City Council to advocate for changing our municipal code.

My grassroots organization Long Beach Grows advocates for just & equitable food access, food security, & urban agriculture. 

I believe that all people should have access to affordable, nutritious, locally grown real food. I also believe that all people should be allowed to feed their families as they see fit, including growing produce in front or back yards & raising small livestock at home for eggs & milk, even in the city.

Our goats Dinkey & Bumper are symbols of food justice & are tired of being outlaws.

As a mother, I hope to teach my child essential life skills so she’ll never go hungry & always know where her food comes from. My wish extends to the members of my urban community as well, especially the kids.

This is why I started Long Beach Grows.

Help us build an urban farm co-op network for people to grow food and community together. Our first site is called Unity Farm!

Donations are tax deductible thanks to our partnership with Catalyst Long Beach Network of Communities, our fiscal sponsor.

For more information, you can listen to my very first radio appearance on Swoop's World Online Radio here.
