In my local food work with Ecolocity D.C., I occassionally write for D.C. Food for All, a group blog with contributors from a variety of regional food justice organizations. Today, I just published a post on there about Ecolocity’s effort to develop food forests in Washington and how you can support the project financially without directly giving us a dime. (Hint – it’s by signing up for wind energy with Clean Currents and mentioning Ecolocity in the “How did you hear about us?” box.)
