Raising Winter GreensSaturday, September 19, 2:30-4:00pmBrett Grohsgal, Even Star Organic Farm explains how the winter garden is a glorious thing. When blustery nights and frigid days are the rule, when real tomatoes seem years and continents away, when supermarket produce is at its worst, winter fields shine emerald with promise.The home gardener often can weed, water, mulch, and nurture plants better than the hectic professional farmer with crops spread out over many wind-swept acres.

Hi AKDLB, thanks for joining us and honoring us with your presence. Feel free to customize your page, post questions, thoughts, articles, photos, videos, add cool apps, make friends, message privately, join or create groups that reflect your interests, perhaps the herbology group?
We look forward to your participation in anchoring our vision with your energy and expertise as we seek to live more sustainably and equitably. We plan a wide range of programs and your input will be welcome.
We meet WEEKLY due to the enormity of the challenges and the urgency needed to address the issues that face us - Tuesdays 7 pm at Emergence Community Arts Collective, 733 Euclid Street NW, WDC 20001. We've been following a schedule something like this:
1st week - Food & Farming
2nd week - Transition
3rd week - Film
4th week - Community Building: Planning & Networking
5th week when there's one - Special guest
but any can be trumped by urgent matters arising. For example, we devoted the first meeting in 2009 to building the infrastructure for an alternative local economy based on time banks and/or local currency, such as Anacostia Hours in circulation in Mount Rainier, and we've met at Takoma Village Cohousing for a presentation. See the Events calendar to save dates of what interests you.
