Free 'Skool' Teaches Sustainable Food Practice

From my own former backyard is an innovative nonprofit called Food Not Bombs Free Skool,

It began as "...a decentralized organization that provides free vegan meals with the public in over1,000 cities mostly by recovering food that would be wasted... In 2011 a small group of volunteers realized they could encourage people to grow their own food in cities all over the world if they taught Food Not Bombs volunteers about the art of gardening and community organizing.  They started the Food Not Bombs Free Skool in Taos, New Mexico to do just that," writes the Pollination Project.

Starting in Summer, 2013, Food Not Bombs volunteers from all over the world will travel to Taos, New Mexico and spend two to four weeks taking workshops on organic grading, the consensus process, community organizing vegan cooking and other skills that will help their local chapter be more effective.
