Food is Free Project
La nourriture est gratuit
We came to France, in January 2019, with the idea of creating a community, a network of bartering, to be self-sustainable and live off our land.
To be as Off-Grid as possible.
We have found that there are like minded people in our area, which s great!
We sometimes watch videos on YouTube, and look for advice from the internet, to help us with our projects and we came across these two guys... FOOD IS FREE PROJECT
It didn't take long for us to decide this was the way forward! Now all we have to do is create a network of local people who are already doing this on some sort of scale.
We all need food to live.
We live in a world where people have to 'work for a living' and in a lot of cases it's very hard to obtain healthy, nutritious, organic food for their families.
There are lots of reasons and situations why people get involved , it's a great way to meet new people and create a much needed change.
Every 'Food for Free' project is slightly different, it will reflect the needs and surroundings of each community.
We will be starting small and letting it organically grow... literally.
We will be starting by setting up a table at the bottom of our garden/field.
(see bottom of this page for our location)
We will be putting up signs around the local area explaining our project and contacting those like minded people I mentioned earlier.
We will be placing various things on our table, each week will be different depending on what we can get hold of or grow etc.
Anything on the table - or around it - will be absolutely FREE and anyone can take it.
People are also more than welcome to leave items too for other people to enjoy.
WE ARE ALSO BUILDING A COMMUNITY GARDEN.
- Come and talk to us about our project, word of mouth is very important.
- Spread awareness with your neighbours.
- Bring food or items, you can spare, of interest to our table.
For example - plants, flowers, vegetables, seeds, plant pots, manure/compost etc.
- Start something similar up in your back/front garden.
- Grow some food in our community garden.
