Here is how we wrap our heads around taking food for ourselves...
4 hour day work trade=bag of seasonal summer veggies
20 hr season work minimum=summer veggies after 4 hr work party and half winter share
40 hr season work minimum=summer veggies after 4 hr work party and full winter share
The mission of the Winter Cache Project (WCP) is to free ourselves from a dependence on industrial agriculture and to increase our community food security by developing sustainable local food systems. By growing and storing our own food to last throughout the winter and educating ourselves about agricultural issues, we aim to create a working example of how we can come together as a community to provide for our basic needs by employing the principles of mutual aid, equal access, and self-determination.
