Evelyn commented on Re-Plate: Re-plating Surplus Meals

Hooman and crew:
Just noticed this on the BCorporation chat on Twitter... https://www.azavea.com/
They have the analytics structure you may be looking for. 
It would be interesting to HUB together the pressure points and figure logistics from there.
Best,
Evelyn

Awesome update: We were able to get two parcels from the County Auction... Hops and Bees and a few trees... and veggies!

Josh:


Claudia mentioned in the comments that you are developing community gardens. I’m glad to see this is part of your network. Composting by neighborhood might be a great advantage for community gardens. What other methods of composting do you have in mind?


As I was reading the funding necessities and requests it occurred to me that as a non-profit you might be able to get a percentage of credit card purchases. [There are also opportunities through sales on Amazon, etc to designate the beneficiary organization. Perhaps someone with non-profit experience can point you in the right direction… It looks like different percentages and advantages might be had depending on the sponsoring card or business.] If this works out the businesses could also promote the collection of and composting as part of credit card purchases.


I posted some UnWasted garden ideas here: https://challenges.openideo.com/challenge/food-waste/ideas/grow-gardens-are-ideas-filled-with-growing-possibilities-use-unwasted-land I hope you might find some of these ideas useful.


Best, Evelyn
