Please join us as we transform Marin County landscapes into bountiful foodscapes, which will save water, help lower carbon emissions, grow food, increase habitat, promote grey water usage, and help create low-impact development—all while educating and empowering our communities, and supporting local businesses.
Doing this can be as simple as planting a tomato and some basil in a pot, or a fruit tree in your yard. It’s also an opportunity to create innovative edible gardens to replace water wasting lawn areas, or on apartment patios, schools, church grounds and business premises.
The goal: Create 500+ organic food gardens in Marin County in one week!
The benefits are many:
• Develop a healthy homegrown food supply in each city or town
• Save water and money
• Cut greenhouse gas emissions
• Build community
• Beautify our neighborhoods
• Support local businesses
