Hi all, does anyone else use the group on Google as a forum? It was referenced in the Urban Ag Strategic Plan Public Meeting #1 Summary, which unfortunately failed to mention the Grounded in Philly grapevine forum even though multiple attendees like Bryce of One Art Community had written about it. I don’t want to assume that they have a pre-conceived agenda or are not actually listening to us when they say they are, but I am here to help increase access to these resources for you if you are a farmer or advocate, free of charge and with no agenda other than I want to see greater environmental awareness, less crime, less poverty, greater food security, and more opportunities for connection, collaboration, and true co-creation.
Are you a farmer in Philly and want to connect to share, learn, connect and collaborate? Well we have knowledge and resources for you!
PUFN is a very active listserv, with thousands of members. It’s a good place to reach out, for sure. It’s not so much a discussion forum as it is a craigslist for urban farmers. Usually discussions take place off-list, replies are generally expected to be sent directly to the person who sent a message. I am an admin on the listserv, so feel free to reach out if you have specific questions.
Thank you, Amanda. I appreciate the input. I hope this community resource is being shared around by now–it’s a living doc from the urban ag working group that’s available here on the COVID-19 resource page. I hope it helps!
