Well, while the title may be a play on words I personally feel blessed by the generosity Alan and the rest of First United Church of Christ on Curry Ford have shown not just Food Not Bombs, but the entire community. I'm sure many of you are wondering where I'm going with this, and oh believe me, I'll get there.
While over at F.U.C.C. (yes, laugh at the acronym because we do too!) this previous Sunday night, I walked around the property and talked to Alan about the use of resources. While we were talking about the FNB office we have over there, and the copious amount of land we have planned for a community garden. I was focused on the back back shed. I say back back because there are two.
While currently the shed holds tables, and fertilizer, and gardening tools it could be utilized for something more, as right now it's just kind of used for storage. So, the question popped into my head and I blurted it out, "Hey Alan, could a bunch of use the back back shed for a bike co-op?" He said of course, as his genuine loving heart always agrees to help everyone out. So the second question came "Would you want us to pay rent?", I quietly said. "Of course not, that's a silly thing to ask," Alan joyfully said back.
So ladies and gents, here she is the proposed FREE building near Curry Ford and Conway. It also comes free with electricity (which I think we should donate an allotted amount of incoming donations to compensate for our usage, if we choose to utilize this space), and all this sweet black pipe, and PVC. The front "yard" if you will is where FNB plans to start a community garden in conjunction with anyone wanting to help and get their hands dirty, more word on that soon, but for now here are some picture I took the other day. Please discuss.
