You can grow your own food. And we can help!

Help with Kitchen Garden Day

Aug 05, 2010

Greetings from Belgium.  World Kitchen Garden Day is two weeks from this Sunday and we could use your help to make it a success.  We can't outspend the International Snack Food Association and their month-long celebration of potato chips, candy and fluorescent orange cheese puffs, but we can outorganize them with your help. 


Here are three things you can do depending on your interests, talents and internet access:


1) Sign up for our global event on Facebook and invite your friends to do the same: the more people who are aware of the day, the better. (5-10 minutes)

2) Help get an informal Kitchen Garden Day gathering started in your area using  You never know what other gardeners there are in your local area who might want to do the same.  And even if you're the only one in your area, you'll still appear on our global map and will be showing your solidarity.  If you're not so big on the internet, you can use this invitation template to make an invite of your own to distribute the old fashioned way, in person.

3) Submit a short dispatch from your own little part of the big kitchen gardening world.  We'll be bringing these together and sharing them to show bother the universality and diversity of our network.


Thanks for being part of KGI's work.
