Start a foodscaping group!

Foodscaping is the way we bring not only beauty to our surroundings, but also affordability, flavor and nutrition back to our food.

John C. Trimble. TEDxOgden 2020

Steps:

  1. Contact your state extension master gardener program for your county.  See if Master Gardeners can get volunteer hours volunteering with your organization. This will be an instant pool of enthusiastic, reliable and knowledgeable volunteers.
  2. Decide how applicants will get in touch with you
    1. Make an email address
    2. Start a facebook page or group? Other social media
    3. Feeling fancy? Design your own website (we used wordpress)
    4. Word of mouth in your community 
    5. Flyers
  3. Set up consultations and plan foodscaping volunteer days. See documents below.
  4. Tell us about it! Contact Us. And let us know if you have questions!
