Hello,
I am a student at Maine Maritime Academy and I am taking a sustainable design class. In this class I need to write a proposal on a project that will promote sustainability in my community. What I want to propose is a meet up where local people that have gardens can meet up and exchange their produce with their neighbors. I want to know if there are any other projects like that out there and if possible how they set it up.
