Go Social with your Sustainable Contacts
I’ve posted here before how I’ve had problems finding certain goods here in the country, such as naturally raised, grass fed and organic meat.
A yoga instructor and massage therapist from our town has created a Facebook page that directs people to businesses that sells sustainable goods, including locally, naturally grown meat.
Although it is just getting off of the ground, it will be a place we can share ideas and maybe even get a crop swapping initiative going like Sarah at Lettuce Eat Kale discusses on her blog this week.
This is a great idea for anyone wanting to build a community of like-minded folks in any area.
Creating a Facebook page is easy. You could call it “Sustainable xxx (name of your town)” and link to businesses and people who can help you build the page., give you ideas and get the community off of the ground.
It might even be a great place for folks to share posts about upcoming protests and meetings. In Wellfleet, Mass., for example, Living Large community member Alexandra, routinely posts on the Chez Sven blog about her town’s fight against the utility company, which wants to use pesticides to kill vegetation. She also has many other sustainable living posts, all of which would be great on a “Sustainable Wellfleet” Facebook page.
Do you know someone who has done this or have you? How is it working?
