Using PAW Challenges to involve more gardeners

Here's info on a new list for Poverty Awareness Week (PAW) Challenges like the one Daily Bread/Food Share did last fall or Ottawa is doing this spring.  Any interested person is welcome to join-- both those who are doing the challenge for a week and those that live it on an ongoing basis.  It's a good opportunity to get more information about how community gardens can improve food security and access to tasty food.  Here is the info on it:
PAWChallenge is for people or groups participating in Poverty Awareness Week
Challenges.  Here you can brainstorm ideas for events to increase awareness,
coordinate events, and share details of events.
People participating in the challenges can share tips for stretching the
individual allotment of challenge money, sources for local free and frugal
items, ways to accomplish things for free, seasonal frugal recipes, frugal
garden resources, and look for local fellow participants who might enjoy
pooling the groceries remaining at the end of the week for a PAW Potluck
Participants can also discuss their struggles, challenges, and triumphs
through the week, and their insights into what life is like as they
experience a portion of the lifestyle on assistance.
