Please join Food and Water Watch’sFair Farm Bill Campaign, City Rising Farm, Blaine Avenue Community Garden and The Green Triangle for a Day of Action at City Rising Farm. Refreshments provided.
The Fair Farm Bill Campaign in Cleveland and our partners invite the community to come out to help City Rising Farm get prepared for its Spring planting season and take action for a fair farm bill. We will be working at City Rising’s permaculture garden location and learning more about why the farm bill is so important and what we can do to shift the power away from big corporations and back in to the hands of our farmers and eaters.
The Farm Bill is a piece for federal legislation that governs all the agricultural policy in
the country. It comes through congress once every 5 years and 2012 is one of those years.
City Rising Farm’s mission is to help people in underserved communities learn to grow fresh local food and build healthy long lasting relationships with each other so they can use those skills and relationships to create opportunities in their own neighborhoods.

March: The Blurb About Herbs!
March's Souper Saturday, The Blurb About Herbs!
Our incredible team of gardeners, organizers and community partners put on another great day of fun... this time on the subject of herbs. The dynamic duo of Josh Koppen and Lara Roketenetz engaged us all in creating decoupage planters to put our mini herb gardens they showed us how to plant in. We then made sachets with dried lavender flowers. Hmmm, hmmm what a wonderful fragrance that was!
Lunch was chock full of herbs. We had bread, herb butter, herb cheese, lavendar cookies, roasted potates with rosemary, tomato basil soup, lentil sprouts and salad. We also had chamomile and berry iced teas. We were full as little bunnies in the lettuce patch when we left.
As always we captured the fun for those of you who were unable to make it. Please feel free to check it all out at the link below.
