Neighborhood Connections and Sustainability
Leaderless circle of folks in the Morongo Basin around our individual and collective gardens. Share what you know--ask about what you don't!
Thanks for visiting ... If you live in the Morongo Basin and have an interest in growing your own food, flowers or native plants in our unique High Desert environment, you're in the right place! We're all here to share freely what we know, ask about what we don't know and so help each other make our gardens happen. There's also a bit of 'social' to our network! Feel free to post an event (see below-right on how-to's), post questions/answers to your blog, and join groups that interest you. Peruse the site and let us know what you think -- we're all co-creating it, so feel free to jump in!
Enjoy --Amara Alban
