CF!G Project goals are to help expand access to community gardens, thereby increasing self-sufficiency and local food security with nutritious, fresh produce; to provide opportunities for environmental education and stewardship of land; and to help create neighborhood gathering places that are welcoming to all, while fostering cooperative, community-building relationships within neighborhoods.

Welcome Jasmin! And to all the Birchwoodies who might check this: my girls are laying up a storm and I have room for a few more egg customers. $3/dozen for multicolored organic eggs from happy free-range chickens - with (often) a duck egg or two thrown in. I live on Bennett Drive near Alderwood and will be setting up a cooler so folks can drop by to pick up eggs and leave $$. If you're interested, send me a message with your phone number and we'll talk.

NOOOOOOO!!! IT CAN'T BE TRUE!!!!!!! Let's put out an APB for (how many?) chickens! I can just see it in the Cascade Weekly Police blotter! We have pics! We can identify them - and they couldn't have wandered away on their own! Is the sign still there?? I have reported this to the TWIG, by the way.

Hi Juliet - who is bringing the flock of urban chickens that have been pecking their way around the city?

Hello Transition Birchwood Members!
Hey, I hope many of you will consider riding bikes to the Great Unleashing event this Sat.- I'm wondering if any of you have bike trailers that we can include in our ride (if they're not already slated for bringing children)... and if anyone would like to collaborate on a quick banner strategy for such bike trailers, if they're made available. We could just pull some hearty native shrubs along, but it would be nice to promote Transtion and the event with some signage as well. Look forward to seeing you and/or hearing from you-

Hi there,
We're meeting at 8:15 on Saturday April 10th to ride bicycles to the Great Unleashing! Decorate your bike, and be ready to join the human powered parade to Bellingham High School. We'll meet at the westside Birchwood Elementary parking lot and ride downtown to the La Fiamma parking lot together. We'll pick a route according to the ability of the riders. It's a bit of a trip, 4 to 5 miles altogether, and I totally encourage you to call me (738-2148) if you need support, a trailer, or other resources. If you are way inspired, and want to be organized, decorated and carry a sign, all the better!
