I'm working with a group called GroundBreakers.  it isn't explicitly a permaculture project, but permaculture will be a big part of it.  the idea is to teach sustainable agriculture to homeless folks.  the website is still under construction, but have a look around.

Very nicely done Tel.  What  a great idea and work....

Did you do the graphics?  The layout is very appealing.

So, you play the accordion for your four goats . . . . interesting

I didn't have much to do with the website.  I didn't even write that biography.  your kind words are appreciated.

we've had harvest days the previous two weekends, and we're doing one more on Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm.  if any of you want to harvest some vegetables to help our project get going, come on out.  the farm is in Duvall, and you'll be able to take some of your harvest home with you.  the balance will be sold to FareStart and the proceeds used to pay for our 501(c)(3) filing.

let me know if there's any interest and I'll post directions to our plot.

you can also have a look at the Groundbreakers facebook page.
 
Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Is this a tiny ad?
