Calling Freedom Gardeners

If you've been reading this blog for long you've probably heard me talk about the Freedom Gardeners web site. It is, to me, the best social network out there for the urban farming, food producing, organic homesteading type of people. Generally, that's all of us!

I found the Dervaes family web site Path to Freedom a couple of years ago, followed them until they launched Freedom Gardens and was the first person in Utah to join that I know of. I had an opportunity to spend an evening at their home not long ago and can honestly say that they are the warmest and most genuine people! If you don't have a profile up there yet, what are you waiting for. I can answer a lot of questions, but I may not be in your zone or your soil type. Chances are though, that of the over 3800 people currently a part of Freedom Gardens, someone does know the answer.

If you are a member already, well heck... drop in and say hi and we'll be "freinds". You can find me on there as CornerGardener.

I also have a special shoutout to any UT Freedom Gardeners. I started a group on the FG site today called "Utah Freedom Gardeners". I really want more than anything to start building a community here in the state. A network of Gardeners and growers to share our experiences and learn. Maybe even get together and have a good time!

If you are already a Freedom Gardener, regardless of state or city, drop us a line in the comments box so I or any of the other readers can check out what you're up to. We're really in a time of change I think. The more we can band together and share information, that more knowledge we will have to help other with.
Check out the site and....GROW ON!

I'm a member over at Freedom Gardens! It's an excellent site. I'm getting my in-town backyard garden ready for this year this weekend and next.

Hi Paul, another member of Freedom Gardeners here. I have been following your blog for a few months now and have learnt so much. I wondered if you could link some of your posts to our Buddy's club we run on Fridays. I was going to ask about a particular post but there are so many great ones. You wouldn't have to write a special ne, any of your previous would be s good. We are trying to help those of us who are having to find a new way to survive in these bad times and want it to be friendly - hence Buddy's. If you decide you would like to contribute the link is on my blog. It would help so many folk and bring them back to your blog.

I hope to see you there

Hey, I came over from Freedom Gardens and Urban Homesteader. Over in the Uintah Basin, I'll be trying to grow as much in my yard as possible.

I'm wanting to plant fruit trees so they have a chance to grow and so I'm thinking of how to get a plan together to get the most use of my urban (downtown) lot.
