BENEFITING: SUSTAINABLE SEATTLE
EVENT DATE: May 04, 2013
On May 4th, I will be doing Streets and Beets, a 40 mile fundraising ride in support of Alleycat Acres who currently coordinate 3 urban farms in Seattle. The way they work: identify an abandoned but usable piece of property in the city, contact the owner to explore transforming that empty lot into a functioning mini-farm in the city, grow veggies and herbs, raise chickens and bees, give of the abundance of that farm to the community. This means that even though I don't have any land to grow food I get to grow things, feed my fam and friends, and then give fresh food to my local food banks too!
