On Communities

I've been busy as all hell with the yardwork on Sat and Sun, so I didn't get a chance to post. Then i busted my hump at the Job today, so no time there. I'm about to run to the grocery store to get some grub, but I wanted to mention a cool thing going on.

We don't dump our yard waste into the landfill here, we actually have a town compost heap. And I have to say it's amazing what can happen when a community pulls together. Yeah, I'm talking about a compost heap. But it's 20'+ high and about 100 yards long and about 15 yards wide. All free for the taking if your a resident.

Now if a community can pull together for compost, what else could we be pulling together on that we are not?

Sounds like your community might be a good place to be when TSHTF. Of course this is just one thing, but it's one thing most places don't have. Use that compost and get your garden goin'!

I would be very interested in the procedure used to get everyone to contribute to the huge compost pile. It sounds like a very good effort and it is definitely a worthwhile product. Email me and let me know how they go about it.

Growing as much food as I can!

We're all going to have to pull together on many different levels in order to keep things going. I live in a small town and I'm thinking about trying to get a "food bank" started.

Stay above the water line!
