Hey all — Brian here. Spring has finally kicked off and we’re having much larger workshop turnouts. We recently hit our maximum number of participants last week, but many interested people keep calling in. We have had over 40 calls ranging from as north as Smith County and as south as Elizabethton. We would like to partner with non-profits in Marion and in East Tennessee to expand Grow Your Own to these areas, so we can have more hubs where locals can attain tilling, education and plants. We are still in the early stages of figuring this out, but anyone who thinks they could help in any way – please reach out to me!
In lighter news, Grow Your Own will finally be getting an official logo. I am in the works of making some art that will stand out and be distinctive from other food access groups.
Again, if you think you can help, in any way, to helping Grow Your Own expand — please contact me or comment below. Hope everyone is doing well and that their programs are growing as much as their veggies!
