Y’all hear that, boys? Sounds like the sound of growing season just around the corner. We here at MEVO have started our seedlings last month: 544 to be exact, and with many more seedlings to be expected along the way. Some of what we’re growing is: eggplants, ground cherries, peppers, collards, broccoli, and cauliflower. Many, many more seedlings are due to arrive soon. We hope we are as excited as we are.
So come volunteer for MEVO this summer and have the chance to work with us!

Growing your own food is so EASY! LEARN HOW HERE!
Don’t got $50? Ask your friends, family, neighbors, and local gardening stores. Often they have extra seeds and supplies that they will be willing to donate. (That’s how we did it!)

Even if the garden only produces a cabbage in a flowerpot, you’ve succeeded in protesting, feeding yourself, cutting carbon emissions, and eating healthier.  Today I’m starting carrots in an 18” deep flowerpot.
