A huge thank you to the folks at Ionia, who were wonderful hosts for our Sustainable Community Day last Saturday. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 people showed up to tour the village, eat some good food, enjoy making or listening to music, and talk about what it means to be a sustainable community. Check out coverage of the event in the Peninsula Clarion:
For those of you who weren’t there Feb. 12 at the Kenai River Center, 45+ people came (students, growers, grandparents with grandkids, newcomers, oldtimers…), and the potluck spread was impressive! There was lots of lively sharing of ideas about what people would like to see happen in this community with regard to increasing local food production and consumption. We conducted a quick poll (voting with sticky dots), and the projects that drew the most interest were: raising awareness/2010 Harvest Party; creating a directory of local producers; and helping people learn skills. Sign-up sheets resulted in a list of volunteers for each of the three. Full results will be posted on this website so that newcomers see what interests there are out in the community. If you’re interested to volunteer, send an e-mail to email@example.com.
