This post will be dedicated to you, the 1,000+ followers of the Alternate Economy blog. Please use the comment thread below to share your ideas as to how the profits from the Experimental Farm this summer should be used.
I have suggested donating half the produce to the Shepherd’s of Good Hope. This idea has received tons of support and will definitely be a part of our plan.
The other half of the produce is the question. After we sell it at market we could have somewhere in the range of $7,500. I have suggested taking this money and going to Uganda, to buy a small plot of land there and create a winter garden. This idea has received mixed reviews. What do YOU think that we should spend that money on?
Please, discuss amongst yourselves. Comment on each other’s comments. And help me decide how best to use the money raised from this summer’s venture.
