Over the weekend our companion site has topped 150 members and growing stronger every day (besides the FG site hasn’t been “officially launched” just yet!).
Jordanne tells me that pretty soon FG will feature more nifty profile features, community forum, community contributed blog, printed propaganda material and more. The site is a work in progress and will be continually growing into a useful online tool and community site where food security fighters can enlist promoting their homegrown efforts – not to mention join in the 100 Foot Diet, Yard Liberation and Harvest Keeper Challenges!
After the Freedom Gardens site is complete since the urban homesteading movement is also growing in popularity we move on to a social network/online magazine site for Urban Homesteaders – complete with online form, “self sufficiency” article and resource library and much, much more. A site for urban homesteaders by real life urban homesteaders. We launched something similar back in 2004 but it never really took off – but now it seems a better time than any to relaunch/restart this online resource.
Oh, and not to forget the long awaited upgrade of the PTF site which will better showcase our 20+ year long urban homesteading efforts. Stay tuned for this and more. We are cooking up some really revolutionary ideas!
At the beginning of the year, we hinted that 2008 was going be one of great growth for the PTF family – and so it has!
Thanks to readers support we are able to keep pioneering a path towards a more sustainable future.
