What if you could live in a neighborhood where
- a rain-watered, Permaculture food forest shades our streets and makes them beautiful?
- you know your neighbors because you often share delicious locally grown food in neighborhood potlucks and garden exchanges?
- kids play and adults gather in neighborhood micro-parks created by the traffic-calming chicanes that create the space for that food forest?, and
- community gardens and commercial market gardens are widespread, and thousands of people are employed in creating a resilient local food supply?
The first steps to transforming Tucson into this Beautiful, Delicious, Safe, and Fun home starts with Learning to Grow, Eat, and Share lots of delicious, local food. You can take that first step on March 25 at the kickoff Community Potluck of the Food Resilience Project of Feeding Tucson /Sustainable Tucson .
The Food Resilience Project of Feeding Tucson is an initiative to encourage and help small groups of neighbors to form Neighborhood Resilience Teams that share local food, help each other garden, and much more. You can start one in your neighborhood, or help others who are willing to take the plunge now.
On Saturday, March 25 from 4:00 to 6:30, people from all over Tucson will gather to share locally grown food. You can bring something from your own garden, or check out these links to local Farmers Markets). You will find out how you can either start your own Neighborhood Resilience Team or join the Resilience Champions network to help others who want to try. You hear about the experiences of the first NRTeam. And you will enjoy a friendly meal made with lots of fresh local ingredients on a beautiful spring evening. (The potluck is near 22nd St and Country Club.)
