Will this be the year that you start growing and sharing the abundance? Let's envision our communities lined in front yard community gardens and fruit trees then take the first steps to plant them!
We are the seed planters of this reality and everything first starts as a vision. The more we unite with others of like mind and heart, the quicker our seeds will sprout into fruition.
A little lettuce plant will bolt, flower and produce 10,000+ seeds, generating enough seeds to share with all of our neighbors and friends. Let's be like the lettuce and act from that same knowing that there is enough for all!
The Food is Free Project has evolved from a front yard garden to an open source movement of over 400 cities around the world. Each food sharing project is about growing and sharing food, but they all look a bit different.
Some of us have front yards, others rooftops, or maybe just a balcony or a window. Join us and let's plant a world of abundance!
Here are some of the recent highlights from the Food is Free worldwide community:
"You can't say you cannot afford to eat well. If you make time it's free! #fitzroy #melbourne #urbangypsy #garden #eatwell #foodisfree #urbanfarming"
"Sharing is caring. Happy Christmas everyone. #garden #gardening #urbangardening #moestuin #verticalgarden #allotment #tinylittlegarden #containergarden #foodisfree #sharingiscaring"
"Look who is back! Our Seeds Toolbox which was fabulously art attacked by Anne a regular long term Laneway visitor and member of our awesome Food Is Free Arts Committee. We love the little ode to our old pal Kiwi Bill (RIP) who donated the toolbox to us prior to him passing away. We hope his family love the gesture of the beautiful Kiwi bird as much as we do. Thanks Anne!"
"Little Micro Market. When we have excess produce we offer it to the locals and set up a stall in the street. This time around other people harvested and offered their own goodies to the mix.

"You know you have the coolest students when they shout, "food is free!" and "These seed packets are $FREE.99" at a showcase event. These seeds are second and third generation seeds of food and medicine saved by our Permaculture and Restorative Justice class. We also showed off part of our project design for the 6 Sisters Youth Garden 💚. So so so grateful for these teachers of mine. #permaculture #youthrising #foodisfree"

You are encouraged to take any ideas from #foodisfreeproject and tailor them to fit your community. We all have something to learn from each other and knowing we're not alone makes it much easier to take a step out into our community and plant the first seeds.
Take the first step and share your #foodisfree photos on social media so we can all stay connected and spread these ripples of inspiration far and wide. I'm excited for Steemit to allow us to grow and unite in ways we are yet to imagine!
Onward and Upward,
