An article in today’s Oregonian has a bevy of local resources for one of the cooler trends of the urban agricultural movement, garden sharing, “… a trend that appears to be spreading roots across the metro area as apartment dwellers and landowners, strangers and neighbors unite to grow their food at a time when seed sales are up and the economy down. Here’s how it works: Everyone contributes what they can, whether it’s land or labor, money or skill, and everyone shares in the bounty.”

The resources are amazing, including some of the following for those to check out locally or emulate in other places:
One resource absent from this list was featured previously on L+U, Your Backyard Farmer, which uses land and provides gardening services of local lands in a similar fashion, for those who have space and want some bounty. Another national network mentioned is Hyperlocavore, a network for Yard Sharing around the country.
Good stuff… anyone know of some other local resources, give a shout.
