surplus fruits and veggies
While many people talk about self-sufficiency as a response to social and ecological crises, #Transition groups all over the world are working towards community-sufficiency. Showing care for our planet as well as sharing food, knowledge and resources with our neighbours and wider communities.
Calling all gardeners! There are folks in our community living in their cars or just struggling with high food prices who could use any excess garden goodies you might have to share. It’s easy to do – Transition Fidalgo has 3 produce stands in Anacortes ready to accept your surplus fruits and veggies at any time.
What do you want to see in your neighborhood and what can you do today to make it happen?

They rented office space and started conducting workshops for children, exercising, making natural cosmetics, began purchasing vegetables from opgs, organizing small neighborhood festivals…
Today the association has over 200 members, 50 volunteers and annually over 1000 terms of various activities are conducted in the association.

And the question for you is – what do you want to see in your neighborhood and what can you do today to make it happen?
