The gift of compost

All right friends things are well on their way! I met a most wonderful woman named Helen last night! She brought me a bucket of compost and helped me thin my strawberries! In turn she took home at least 100 strawberry plants! Its nice to meet new people and while I have never received the gift of compost I know my strawberries are going to love it! Please let me know if there is anything you think can be done to improve the blog. I am out meeting people and promoting what is going on here but I need you all to do the same as well! This is about having an entire community as a resource!

Early farming practices were typically a community event. Not everyone could afford the horses and equipment to plow, seed and harvest the fields. Everyone pitched in making farming a truly neighborly way of life. I am a transplanted farm girl. I have found urban life to be isolating despite the fact that I am out and available for a neighborly chat most every day. I always have something to share from my garden and have exhausted my closest friends with offers of plant material. But what if there was a place for the average urban dweller to share with the entire community? A place that would allow you to not only give but to receive. A place to trade knowledge, experience, equipment, harvests and plant material on a local level. Well my friends we are going to give it a try because I am willing to bet that even if you don't consider yourself a gardener, you have something garden related to give! So, email me at with your garden offer. Include a description of your item for offer along with your email address. When responding to an offer, respond directly and by all means let me know when your item is gone.

Happy Gardening!
