Is Free Food The Future?
Wouldn’t it be nice if your street was filled with homegrown food, and you were friends with all your neighbors? "Food is Free" is jumpstarting the idea of relying on a hyperlocal gifting economy to supply food, entertainment and social connection. The goal is to create and share tools, knowledge and information to empower people in our neighborhoods to bring the return of the local economy. There's no reason why each house, apartment, or street shouldn't have its own food producing garden, community compost program, community tool shed, potlucks and other means to share and support each other. If you have a passion for neighborhood-building, the environment, self-sufficiency, homegrown food or educating the next generation, this project addresses all of these things.
