Maricopa County Food Systems Coalition Forum

to support and grow a food system in Maricopa County

Maricopa County Food Systems Coalition Forum is a social network

Are there going to be any classes on this topic? Given California's current situation I am really surprised there aren't more posts.

If you're really into water harvesting (warning - it's addictive!!) - we have several events coming up.

The first is a potluck at a N. Phoenix residence with extensive rainwater and greywater harvesting features TOMORROW - Sunday 3/22 - The international Day of Water.

On 3/28 we'll begin the installation of a water harvesting veggie garden and orchard at the Peoria City Hall (how awesome is that??) 

On 4/1 Ryan Wood will be doing a talk and tour at the main Glendale Library were WMG "turned the mound upside down" last year.

On 4/4 we'll be finishing the water harvesting earthworks in my front yard in Central Phoenix. 

Please note that you must sign up for these FREE events to receive the location and so that the organizers will know how many people to expect for food, tools, etc.

See all these events in greater detail here:  http://watershedmg.org/calendar-phoenix

Thanks for those links, Jennifer.  For some reason, I can't see any activity on the calendar.

And here's some more coming up this month!
