Here’s some great news from the Positive Energetics Foundation of Hawaii, one of our Sow It Forward grantees. They’re using their grant to grow a bountiful garden which supplies the local WIC program on the north shore of Oahu with vibrant, fresh veggies. Keep up the good work!
I GOT A PINK LITTLE CUTIE OF A STRAWBERRY =D
I was helping my dad with driving around my Aunt and her friend Ruby, when I noticed this little guy blooming in Ruby’s lawn. I asked her if I could take a little fella and she said sure. I now have the little fella planted by the Playhouse part of the shade garden. I already have several rescued everbearing strawberries thrown all over in my gardens, (they were going to be discarded from my parents’ veggie garden, so I decided to have them take refuge in my flowerbeds instead) but definitely no pink flowered strawberries until this fella! Pink Strawberries are hard to come by outside of cultivation since most pink strawberries are created through Fragaria X Potentilla hybrids. I hope this little cutie establishes and spreads happily in my woodland garden area =) I think it’ll look interesting when it eventually grows and flowers with the various violas.

((Oh btw guys my camera died after taking this pic. So until I can find the battery charger I won’t be able to take anymore floral photos =( sorry guys))
A swap I started about 3 years ago. I have a bunch of culinary greens/kale/mustard to trade. I’d like: Jerusalem artichoke cuttings, comfrey cuttings, interesting fruit scions, medicinal and multi-functional plants. I’d say keep in the continental US, but if you’re willing to pay the extra postage I’d be open to send elsewhere. Thanks.
Hey USA WWOOFers, how do I know if I’ve received a message on the WWOOF site?
sometimes i think maybe you guys are getting tired of baby cow pictures… but who gets tired of baby cow pictures?!
Hi everyone, I am looking for farms in the greater Denver area to work/volunteer at this summer. I am mainly looking for farms where I can volunteer a set number of hours per week in exchange for some foods (and experience!), so that I can work a money job as well. I do need a paying job, at least part-time, so if anyone knows of any farms with paid positions, that’d be great.
I am willing to live in residence (with my two cats) for a paying position, however I do have accommodations in Commerce City, and my own vehicle.
If you know of any networks besides WWOOF and growfood.org that I can join, please let me know!
I’m posting my experience/skills behind a cut, please feel free to reblog and tell all your friends about me :)
