In my previous post
, I mentioned my intentions to get more involved with Project H's Empowerment Through Food
I already have a little garden of my own that I will be expanding on in the coming spring.
But a new project that I would like to work on with others is the creation of template gardens. Basically this would be an online repository where you could look up your region and find a template for a garden that is fit for your region's weather conditions.
More specifically though, I would like to use the forest garden concept - where you create an ecosystem that is self sustaining rather than having to maintain a garden.

Feel free to comment on this if you think it's an interesting idea or already have some forest templates of your own.EDIT:
After doing more research I found a great blog post here
about forest gardening, better known as permaculture.
Another project that I just came across is the Apps for Health
campaign run by the White House. The program aims to get developers and game designers to create interactive ways for kids to become more engaged in learning about their own health. Something I'm thinking I may get involved with... ;]
