Here are a few examples of people doing things I’d like to do.
The Compost Cooperative in Greenfield, Massachussets provides residents with 5 gallon buckets to fill with food scraps, then picks up the buckets and delivers them to a local farm to be composted. The Denver Compost Collective is doing the same thing.
Here are a few examples of organizations that pick up food that’s headed for the trash can and redistribute it so it gets eaten:
- Philly Food Rescue
- Boulder Food Rescue (bonus points: they do it on bicycles)
- More operations listed on the Food Rescue Hero website
Here are a few nearby farms growing food organically:
- Hornsby Farms in Auburn, AL is a small family farm. (Not sure how I feel about plasticulture 🤔)
Buckeye Seed & Supply produces and sells goosefoot seeds. So does PlantPassion777 on Etsy.
Cafe Campesino is a small coffee roaster in Americus, GA that gets their beans from a cooperatively owned and operated coffee importing organization.
Next time I write something, I'll let you know.
