Ron Finley: Food Forest

“This film tells the story of a South Los Angeles edible garden planted in a surprising spot. Ron Finley, its planter, constructed the garden the way he wishes his neighborhood could be. And his vision of re-purposing unused open space, like that of many others working together on urban agriculture in our city, should inspire us all, and remind us of how, with a little creativity of vision, and willingness to get our hands dirty, we can remake spaces defined by asphalt and dead grass into productive places of beauty.”

$5.00 Gardening Classes at Thanksgiving Point

Local – Utah County, Utah  Thanksgiving Point  Saturday, 2/23/13
On Saturday, February 23rd, Thanksgiving Point is hosting its yearly Spring Backyard Gardening Workshops.  All classes are $5 each, with a few exceptions, and range all over the gardening topics out there from seeds to bees to pruning to chickens.  I’ll be teaching about herbs, gardening month by month in Utah and beginning organic gardening – provided the baby decides to wait that long!
Go to http://register.asapconnected.com/Courses.aspx?CourseGroupID=1725 to register on Thanksgiving Point’s website – you must register to attend and most years you can plan to do that on site if you don’t get around to it beforehand.  BUT, our education coordinator has said she’s already had to up the registration limits because so many people are wanting to attend this year so please don’t delay!

Here’s a little reminder about this week’s meeting/swap! We hope to see everyone on Thursday evening at the Midvale library for our discussion on early spring crops and our first swap of the year. Please visit the events page for more details and to rsvp. But wait, there’s more!

If you don’t have seed to swap but you would like to try a few early spring crops, there will be a way for you to do that so be sure to come on ahead and we’ll fill you in on the details.

Also, to those interested in participating on the board/standing committees (helping with media, organizing swaps and keeping our seed bank up and running, being involved in organizing classes and schedules and lots of other things), make sure you come Thursday night so we can get your contact information. If you aren’t able to attend this week, please post a message here, on the website or Yahoo page. We will meet together early in February to hold elections and get our bylaws in order.

Any questions? Just holler and we’re looking forward to seeing new faces on Thursday!
