  Foxhole Homes Breaks Ground

An Earthship & Permaculture Veteran Community is digging into the New Mexico landscape. This is the first dwelling in a series of hand-built, sustainable-systems-designed homes, by veterans for veterans, near Ft. Bliss in Alamagordo, NM.  The homes are designed to incorporate individual greenhouses that regulate climate control, capture rainwater and provide food in the desert.  Truly affordable housing. Sweat equity welcomed.

    Veteran-Inspired ‘100 Seeds of Change’ Transforms a Food Desert 
D’Artagnan Scorza (seen in Ground Ops) started with a seed of an idea: work with high school students to start growing food in an abandoned lot across from the high school. Since starting with the one piece of degraded land, D’Art’s non-profit (The Social Justice Learning Institute) has helped neighbors build almost 60 food gardens, planted thousands of fruit trees, held dozens of nutrition & gardening workshops and now….. has launched the first-ever Inglewood Farmers Market.  Go Navy!

 

Thousands of veterans are being called to the land.  We use our film and social action campaign to share the news with both veterans and the communities they serve.  We couldn’t do this work with the enthusiastic support of people like you.

Please think about sharing this newsletter with at least one friend who might also like some good news.  If you like what we do, please consider making a donation to help us roll out this new edition of the film with it’s brand new resource guide.

Thank you for all that you do to create a more just sustainable and delicious world,

Dulanie, Ray, Amy, Adam & the veterans we serve
