The main current projects are the TTB Wholefood Organic Food Coop and the Slade Gardens Permaculture Demonstration site. The coop organizes an order every couple of months and the Slade Gardens project is just getting off the ground as it has taken a long time to get a signed license for the use of the land.
Take a look at photos from the BLIP project (Bringing Land into Production) to see the kinds of things we’ve been doing.
We had a very interesting and informative ‘Focus on Food’ evening at the TTB Shared Space evening last week. - one of the things we discussed was the need to look at what the priorities are when we have less volunteers and what special role can we can play when there are food projects popping up all over the place?
