LOCAL FOOD CO-OP


Jordanne and goats waiting for the truck, truck arrives

Yesterday was certainly a busy day for us urban homesteaders. We had a camera crew filming all day, following us around and sitting us down for personal interviews. Other than filming, PTF also had an exploratory meeting with some folks at city hall. And then there was the NELA co op pick up down at the Rose Bowl parking area which the film crew tagged along while we picked up our bulk goods. We like to bring the goats with us to the pick up and let them run and play in the park. They are just like kids, they love climbing on the playground equipment. It was a pretty exciting day!

    Just had to comment again on how much I love the stories of your urban goats and urban heidi(s)! (Actually, the idea of it just blows my mind still — so I’m glad you have photos for proof).

    FYI, I’ve posted my latest 100’Diet entry:

    A local food co-op is something I am really interested in. Unfortunately I have yet to locate one even remotely close. Love the photos!

    I just want to say, while my baby girl sleeps and I have a quick moment, that your site is increasingly helpful. You all are such visionaries and illuminaries, and i am blessed to have come across your work when I did. I cannot begin to express in words how grateful I am for your leadership, stewardship, and dedication. I look forward to honoring you through my own family’s increasingly sustainable life and work. i just wanted to comment on a post a few weeks back by someone suggesting your not having healthcare was irresponsible etc. I found the insinuations in the question quite troublesome. Nobody is doing more or acting more responsibly than you all are with regard to your health. And, it is certainly not your fault that emergency medical care is off the charts expensive, and that seeing a doctor even requires health insurance, or that are world is so jacked up that healthy people can’t reasonably expect to pay for any emergencies at a reasonable, affordable rate. I also want to say how much i admire you two women for all you do. At some point, as though you don’t have enough projects going, I would love a quick rundown of some of Jordanne’s natural medicines for pets…as we are just beginning our efforts. Already, our two border collies are filled with tics and I have not found adequate information on how to care for them without crazy chems. We all miss seeing you guys, and dancing to your words, and feeling the light of your family and smiles. Again, we send you so much love and gratitude for your increasingly amazing work with this journal of yours that is like a life/ hopeline to so many! Love, Gina Angelique

    Another 100 Foot Diet meal from me as well (this one was partially solar cooked, even!):

    I love the goat pics, by the way, please keep them coming! I grew up visiting a herd of pygmy goats all through my childhood at a family friend’s house, and I’ve loved them ever since.

    Thanks for the post about the merits of daikon radishes a few posts back, by the way. We were sitting on the fence as to whether to give them a try this year, and you made them sound so interesting that we’re taking the plunge and trying them out in 2008.
