  • Why You Should Start a Food is Free Project

    Posted on April 22, 2014 by in Food is Free Blog

    I’m Trista and I’m starting a Food is Free Project in my beautiful hometown of San Marcos, TX and this is my story . Simply put, last year I was a young senior at TSU and I was struggling. I’ve made good money working as a waitress, I’ve always been at the top of my class, I’ve traveled far and wide, I’ve made amazing friends, but I still couldn’t help feeling like I needed to do something more. All these things weren’t enough for me and quite frankly I didn’t see my life going in the direction that I wanted it to.

    I’ve chosen Dietetics as my major and I’ve stuck with it for four years because I strongly believe in the importance of eating healthy. My passions are more developed than they ever have been and I’ve realized that food isn’t just enrichment for the body but its also for the soul. I’ve found that gardening is my true passion. Gardening not only allows me to produce what I consider to be the most healthful foods for the body but it also gives me clarity throughout my day. It’s a very valuable feeling that the majority of us don’t get enough of. We do not spend enough time doing the things we love, with the people we love, in the places that we love and Food Is Free has given this to me. It’s my environment where I can live out my passions, make connections with other passionate people, and give back to the community.

    The first thing I did when starting up was find a team. My team consists mostly of friends from a student organization called the Human Environmental Animal Team (aka Heat) that have all struggled in some way to find fulfillment and now we’re all leaders in this project. We’re all equally contributing to each others goals and we’ve created something truly unique to San Marcos that enriches all our lives, because that’s what it’s really all about. Most of our momentum has gathered from making connections with the community through the Food bank, the after-school gardening programs, the San Marcos Nature Center, and other organizations with similar missions.

    This small bit of networking has gotten us into several community festivals and fundraisers like Foodstock, Mr. Fest, and the Wild Rice Festival. This is how we’ve been raising all our money for our builds. As a team, we’ve helped each other realize that we’re all just as capable at making a difference as any other extraordinary human being that has ever lived.

    fifsm

    We’re all leaders, innovators, masterminds, and pioneers. Once you realize this, it doesn’t matter how small you start because you’re dreaming big now. If you would like to join us, I’ve got dreams to share with everyone.

    Have an inspirational day!

    We want to see you and have a chance to celebrate and connect so we’re going to be doing just that at Lamberts on Thursday, February 27th with Mighty Mountain and Emily Wolfe.
    For those who don’t know, when Jonathan and I aren’t running Food is Free, we share songs through Mighty Mountain about how we’re all connected and all in this together. We have a good time and think you will too. :)

    We’ve kicked back off our Saturday volunteer days on our teaching farm so come out and get your hands dirty with us. Join our meetup group to stay plugged in to future workshops and events. (http://www.meetup.com/foodisfree)
    We also just got our official 501c3 non-profit status! If you have tools, supplies or fiscal contributions we’d be more than happy to put them to use and provide you with a tax-deductible receipt. ;)

    Make it a great day and do something small to lift up the world around you today!

  • Backyard Permaculture

    Posted on March 27, 2014 by in Food is Free Blog

    We haven’t been on top of blogging lately because we’re giving our whole urban farm an overhaul. It’s really exciting and we’re looking foward to getting back on the blogging tip and bringing in some awesome guest bloggers as well. Enjoy the day and go outside and plant a seed!

    This is one of our top permaculture videos. It’s really informative, well-made and it’s been an inspiration for the systems we’re implementing on our little urban farm. We’re growing edible vining plants up our chicken run fencing which also helps provide shade. It’s really cool to observe and learn how everything is connected and take that into account when designing our farms, gardens and big scale agriculture as well.

  • Help us Spread the Harvest

    Posted on June 19, 2013 by in Food is Free Blog

    The Food is Free Project is growing as fast as those veggies in your front yard! Food is Free gardens are popping up in cities around the globe and we have many exciting new projects on the horizon. The first five sister branches of Food is Free are already starting in San Marcos, El Paso, Reno, Tasmania and Oahu!

    We’re creating a model for how to grow food in the city with your neighbors. By sharing our success and failures, we have inspired many like-minded projects to blossom. Food is Free works to inspire and empower you to find your passion and share it with your community.

    This fall Food is Free is starting a Youth Outreach Program. We will be building gardens and teaching interactive workshops in schools where the majority of the children participate in the free or reduced meals program. We strongly believe that if we share our passion for growing food and community with kids, we will change the world, together.

    It is because of our supporters that we have been able to make all of this happen. We need your continued support to keep growing. That is why for the next 2 weeks the Spread the Harvest Campaign will allow you to become a monthly contributor to the Food is Free Project.

    Our goal is to reach 50 monthly donors by the end of our campaign. Help us reach our goal by Growing a Garden, Creating a Food Forest, or even Planting a Seed! All monthly sponsors this week will be entered to win a garden in a place of their choosing. All sponsors at the Food Forest level will receive a Food is Free t-shirt during the campaign!

    Please help us continue to liberate and empower communities around the world. Thank you so much.

  • Food is Free in Your Front Yard

    Posted on May 27, 2013 by in Food is Free Blog

    Have you thought about starting a Food is Free Project on your block? For a moment, pause, and imagine what it would be like if you and your neighbors came together and started growing food together. What might that look like? What if every time you drove down your block, you passed an array of community gardens and neighbors knew each other? Look out your window and imagine a garden there.

    It starts with a vision, but the action is really simple. Plant a garden in your front yard. Maybe you rent your house? So do we! Just go for it. We assure you, it’s worth it. While you’re out with your hands in the soil, conversations will follow. Neighbors will ask what your planting while passing by. That’s how it starts and we’re here to help you out.

    Here in Austin, we’re working to document and share our successes and mistakes as we’ve come together to line our block in front yard community gardens. It started with 1 garden in our front yard, which has now expanded to 19/30 houses on our street hosting a Food is Free wicking bed garden. We’ve also started a community composting program to generate soil for our block, and have an outdoor kitchen and tool sharing workshop on the way. Start the conversation in your community and stay in touch if you have questions that we can walk you through.

    Remember, start simple and small and the rest will happen organically. The most important part is to take the first step! Put out a call on social media for like-minded individuals in your town. Meet up over a potluck or while planting a garden together. Whatever you do, make sure to document it and share it with your friends, because the ripple keeps moving and inspiring far beyond our own horizon.

    Check out this Craigslist post from Reno, NV as a great example!

    All the best and onward and upward!
