Green Your Community: Share Food

Potluck dinner Green neighborhoods aren't just good for the planet: When times are tough, strong communities can ease financial burdens and provide emotional support. This week we're providing tips for getting by with a little help from your friends and neighbors.

Tip #2: Meet and Eat

Sharing a meal is a great way to connect with neighbors and friends (keep costs low by hosting potluck dinners). Network with like-minded folks by joining a community garden or a community-supported agriculture (CSA) co-op. Cut back on carbon by joining with other CSA members in your area: Set up one central delivery point, then walk to that person's house to pick up your fresh, local produce.
