I stumbled across this project and was totally delighted in what I found! This is a project which grows community and food .. and what’s more they fundamentally believe food should be free … sound familiar? But this one is in Texas, USA.
Launched in January 2012, The Food is Free Project hold events which gather people together, build community by building raised gardens and wicking beds, install them on the front of people’s property, teach people about gardening and sharing, and the harvest is free to anyone that passes by. Brilliant!
More and more people are recognizing the importance of local food and supporting our communities at home. Food is Free provides a platform for community interaction that opens doors to further collaboration and connection. Imagine driving down your street, where the majority of homes host a front yard community garden, neighbors come together for potlucks, establish tool-sharing and community composting programs while creating safer, more beautiful neighborhoods.
We hear you – loud and clear!!
