Occupy Reno has begun yet another program to benefit our local community: a garden for the 99%! In addition to cleaning parks, supporting local businesses, educating the public and helping people facing home foreclosure, Occupy Reno has created a 12×12 hoop house at the Moana site to grow food for occupiers (for now) and to show that we could become a productive part of the Reno local food network! This could include supplying produce to the Great Basin Community Food Co-op or even participating in the Farm to School program which provides local schoolchildren with locally grown produce!
Please come visit our site and take a tour. Bring your gloves, your seeds and especially your ideas to help us grow this and the Moana Park into something special!
