At the very successful Community Earth Day Fair, it was clear that Forest Hills residents have a great interest in sustainable and healthy food. Sustainable Forest Hills wants to collaborate with other groups to develop one or more highly visible projects in Forest Hills. We're not promising a particular outcome, but we look forward to next steps. We seek collaborators for ongoing community awareness raising events around gardening and sustainability.
- Propose a site for a community garden, rooftop farm, or compost collection.
- Should we try to set up a farmer's market?
- Have space for a garden but little time or knowledge for gardening? Or are you a willing gardener with no yard? We could try the garden share system that's started in Brooklyn, matching neighbors. http://bkfarmyards.com/
- Set up onsite school gardens through NYC’s www.growtolearn.org/?
- Other suggestions?
