Food Militia : Wild Food Foragers, Guerilla Gardners UNITE


This is a cooperative network of wild food foragers.  

 

 

 

By creating awareness about what is available in our neighborhoods, we hope to re-establish the connection between people, environment and food.

 

Protect & Track Your Own Food Source 

 This is a cooperative network of wild food foragers. By creating awareness about what is available in our neighborhoods, we hope to re-establish the connection between people, environment and food.

Add all info to our map. Any user may update this map, with images and description. 

 

MISSION:
Locate WILD FOOD SOURCE

Once food source has been located report to HQ and enter data (location, food type, important info). Once information is entered it appears on the Google Maps Database to your right. Add relevant info such as how to access location (subway stations, bus routes, bike paths).

Verify food sources entered by other members; when needed, update database following procedure described above.

Snap a shot with your cell phone, write a description, be creative! Upload the images and more directly onto the map.

Advise immediately if similar operating militias are found. These must be identified and their data is our data.   

 

 YOUR GOAL:

Create an urban, uncontrolled, worldwide network and database of food availably. Seed may be used in guerrilla gardening. Think wisely, think fast, think collectively: BE INSPIRED.

PLEASE NOTE: We are currently working on the interactive map where you will be able to add the location where you've identified food, images and a description, all this in a Google Map environment. Please visit our sister site (Oregon only database), we want our map to look like that. If you can get us the code for that kind of map, we'll be sure to credit you!
