Grow Our Own started at the beginning of the year when toilet paper and food started becoming scarce off of store shelves.
Darrah Perez-Good Voice Elk and Deneica Barrett came up with a plan to utilize zoom with friends and family. “It started out with the planting of strawberries,” Barrett said, “Darrah had a plan to get us to grow our own food.”
They planted strawberries from the seed on the app Zoom and the following week they planted potatoes in a box. Technology had become their connection.
The Grow Our Own group has a Zoom meeting every Sunday starting at 11a.m. where they start each session with an introduction and reintroduction for those who are new or for others who are curious to know what others are doing. So far it has been a great way to connect and gain inspiration for what the Wind River gardening community is doing.
With gardeners from all levels of experience Wind River Grow Our Own 307’s weekly zoom has become a great way to keep everyone connected with what’s going to happen next in the Wind River/Fremont County gardening community.
Each week the zoom meetings are recorded and can be watched upon Grow Our Own’s YouTube channel.
