Hey, Folks. One way that I have been inspired to make permaculture
accessible to folks of all socioeconomic statuses and ethnic backgrounds is
through the Lots of Food project. Please consider supporting this project.

other permaculture activists.
Now for the generic message part...

We're very excited to see that our work is already having a positive
in the neighborhoods as both adults and children come out to work in the
gardens, learn about the plants, and ask questions. At the Montgomery

our team members is co-leading a Winter Children's Program one night a
after school. We have done all of this with almost no funding.
I am excited to continue this work into 2014 and beyond. This project
truly life giving work for me! Fundraising will mean that we can spend
time in the gardens working with folks and less time scrounging for
resources. I hope that you will consider giving what you can to support
fundraising efforts. And, yes!, please share this email with anyone you
