What kind of HOMEGROWN are you?
Dirt Under My Fingernails City Slicker
A bit about me:
raised suburban, trained as a biologist at UCB - having worked as environmental educator, community organizer, and fisheries consultant - FINALLY I see what it all boils down to: grow the food! Ive come to believe that the fear-based profit-driven lifestyles are a misplaced fear of starvation due to our complete ignorance of food production.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
acorrn squash stuffed with wild rice and adzuki (sp?) beans

dont worry, be happy!

But *I* don't like birds, so me trying to talk up the idea to the rest of the crowd tends to fall rather flat... No fresh eggs for me for a while! ;P

I'm totally inconvenient to Venice, but when you get down here, check again with me and I'll see if any of my friends on the West Side are amenable to the sharing of property for food...

Hey Mary

I like the chicken at Berkeley story...I have two going there now and they entertained a friend's chick over a weekend so that it would have a nice life experience before becoming python food. They coddled it, took it to campus to play in the glen, passed it around, etc. Then said bye.

Did you participate in the Gardens of Gratitude event up there? We're going to hear how it went...there's an event down here in OC and someone will talk about it and we'll ponder whether or not to do the same.

Hi Mary,
My sister also lives in Malibu. Kathy May (husband Meril). Maybe you will run into each other someday (small world).
Bees love clover. It is a very hearty flowering plant that is easy to grow and keeps comming up year after year. The honey from it is very light.
I get my bees through a local association (EMBA-Eastern MO beekeepers Assoc.) It's a great place to get support and education for new bee keepers and hopefully there is one near you. I order supplies through catalogs from Dadant but there are others out there (some people even make their own hives!). Good luck & all the best!
