WHERE ARE WE WITH OUR GARDENS? WHERE ARE WITH OUR COMPOSTING?
WHERE ARE WE WITH OUR VIDEOS? WHERE ARE WE WITH OUR SHOPPING
& DAILY HABITS? AND, WHERE ARE WE WITH OUR READING & RESEARCH?!!!

Even though we are supporting our local and organic farmers weekly, our very own Kristin (who is skyping in from WI) volunteered to put together a cheat sheet for us to use when shopping in the super markets.
We are committed to learning what companies we want to support and which we DO NOT want to support.
I've updated last week's blog with more contact info to hunt through, read & research. Don't forget to post your comments, updates, findings and recommendations on this blog for others to see!
There will be no meeting next Wednesday because we are meeting the following Saturday, April 10th, to do the School Garden Tour. 12 Valley schools are opening up their gardens.
Our girlie Ricki Weiner will be the contact for this "field trip". She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org & she will be calling each member of Growing in 2010 individually to plan and organize for that event.
