Human Security and Water Governance
The mission of the Chico Garden Share Project is to start food gardens this Spring 2011 within our local community by organizing Garden Wheel Events in collaboration with the Chico Permaculture Guild.
This project will create an arena for people to make connections within their community and begin to share their yards for food gardens, also with people who have no place to garden. We will encourage people to group together and calculate how much food they need to grow for their group, then plan their individual gardens accordingly. We will also be involved in promoting the local Community Gardens and School Gardens.
Our goal is to create sustainable food, through education in Permaculture Design and Sustainable Soils techniques, thus empowering people to create their own food safety, while sequestering carbon into the soil and helping to lower their carbon footprint.
