FREEDOM GARDENS RETOOLED

Check out the new navigation bar!

Growing for 21st century food security, FreedomGardens.org is an online social community of gardening enthusiasts who are fed up with foreign oil, frequent food miles and high food prices.

It’s not finished yet, but no matter, we are celebrating small victories here today.  The PTF team is pleased to say that our social network site, Freedom Gardens, has been relaunched.

Of course, as with any site, there’s a few kinks, glitches, bugs and wrinkles to be work out and some redesign and color issues.  First the cake, then the icing right?

Despite all the issues that remain we are growing forward!

    I am constantly impressed at the consistency with which you guys work. This is just another example of your mass creation. While I get caught in the ebb and flow of everyday life, you guys are consistenly pushing forward…tirelessly it seems. Thank you for that example and for creating new ways for me to be excited about the homegrown revolution. My neighbors are starting to get interested and I actually know them now because we strike up a conversation while I’m working in the garden. Thanks again.
