Nov 15C..I.C.L.E. & Path to Freedom collobarative Harvest Celebration, San Pasqual Park, South Pasadena (11:30 am til dark) Event is FREE

Start the day by decorating your bike and riding an easy-paced Urban Expeditions bike ride around the neighborhood. After the ride, get ready for the “100-mile potluck” challenge, where potluck contestants will compete against each other for the prestigious “most local dish” award. Next we’ll enjoy the fruits of the harvest as we feast on local and homegrown delectable potluck delights. And there’s nothing like a bit of fun after a good meal. Be sure to bring your musical instruments (if you play) and take part in an impromptu jam session. Get creative and use your brain playing “sustainable charades”. Enjoy kickball, a scavenger hunt, volleyball, gunny sack races and being a kid again–and make sure to bring the kids!

So grab your bikes, your friends, and your family and come celebrate with the C.I.C.L.E. folks and the legendary urban homesteaders from Path to Freedom.

Nov 16HomeGrown Screening, St Louis ( 5 pm). Though PTF will NOT be able to make it there in person, Farmer D will issue a statement to be read by the director during the discussion after the film about urban agriculture.  If you will be attending this screening and are a Freedom Gardener, easily hook up with fellow homegrown revolutionaries by printing up these nifty name tags. Oh, and don’t forget to take a group photo!

Nov (TBD) – Film & Food Night and local Freedom Garden Meetup.

    I LOVE your web site and appreciate your style of living. I am often a lurker of your site and realize that I need to thank your family for providing valuable information on your beautiful way of life. I am originally from the Appalachian Mountains and when I was growing up it was not uncommon for people to be living and practicing a sustainable style of living. Now you probably have a better chance of finding a dinosaur! Thank you for reminding our nation that we do have alternatives and those alternatives can work!!

    To add to the news articles you might be interested in during your “spare” time, a friend linked me to this NY Times Magazine article encouraging massive farming reform, including biodiversity, sustainable practices, and moving away from monoculture.
