Greetings fellow feed’em fighters! At long last, Springtime has arrived! Time to dig deep into the Earth, grow roots, and get our hands dirty once again. In this blossoming spirit, Durango FNB has several projects in the works we would like to let you know about, and need your help with!
Food Not Lawns garden!
Durango FNB is starting a Food Not Lawns community garden to grow food for our meals and our community! We’ve got lots of materials coming in from various local businesses, but right now, we need a lawnmower, or something to slash all the weeds in the plot with. So if anyone has access to a mower (preferably a push mower, but we’re not picky), let us know. And if you want to check out the garden site, it’s on second street between 6th and 7th avenues, on the corner of the alley, with a shed and a hoop house frame on it. And if you want to help, let us know. Stay tuned for work day announcements. Thanks!
Durango FNB is also teaming up in solidarity with Buffalo Council on a food sovereignty initiative. We plan to purchase one or two high-quality, sturdy, portable greenhouses, which will be used to propagate organic native plants and pursue an indigenous model of permaculture and paradigm of health. The organic food we produce will be used in FNB meals and distributed to those in the community who need it most, free of charge.
In pursuit of this initiative, Buffalo Council and FNB are hosting a two-phase benefit fundraiser event at UniTEA House on Saturday, April 21, 2012, starting at 4pm with a dinner, presentation, and discussion with Buffalo Council, followed up later in the evening with live music and more.
