Second Harvest of the Big Bend is the largest show around in terms of making sure folks in the Bend get enough to eat. They dream of a new facility that will enable them to distribute 2 milion additional lbs/year. I like that dream. It\'s no joke.

Second Harvest of the Big Bend is the largest show in town when it comes to making sure folks around the Bend get enough to eat. They dream of a new facility that will enable them to distribute 2 milion additional lbs/year. I support that dream.

The Food Movement is about shortening the link between seeds and eating food.  On an even simpler level, it's about food security; it's about making sure we all get enough to eat.  It's about making sure that we all eat well.  It's about healthy, affordable food.

Second Harvest has long led the way in this department and, now, faced with a tough economy, they hope to up the ante.

So, how about this?

How about for the first person that writes a check to Second Harvest of the Big Bend in front of me for $250, I'll install a 4x10 raised-bed food garden in their yard for free. How about for the first person that cuts a check to Second Harvest for $40, I'll come to their home for a free food garden consult?

How about we grow extra food in our gardens to give to food pantries across the Big Bend?

How about we talk about ways to empower folks to grow their own food and share it?

How about let's see to it that Second Harvest's new facility gets built?

I'll get things started with $100 bucks. 

Give it some thought: can you spare five?

Keep in mind that if I do work for you in April or May, I'll match the first $20-$50 of your donation to Second Harvest that's over-and-above the price of my services.

Lasty, know that I thrive on ideas.  So, if you have any creative fundraising ideas that I could enact to booster the good work of Second Harvest, I would love to hear them.
