"Independence Days Challenge" Ideas

"Independence Days Challenge" Ideas-
I read about this tonite, and thought what a great idea it is!  It started me thinking about what I can do, and what I'd like to learn, or practice. Here's the list to work on:

1. Plant something
2. Harvest something
3. Preserve something
4. Waste not
5. Want not
6. Eat the food
7. Build Community Food systems
8. Skill up

I read the idea came from here-  Great thinking! I will try and post something about how I do each week or so... Join in!

That's very similar to our family motto too. It speaks "simplicity" too.

Yes, I do most those too, but I want to be more mindful of them :)

Hi! Thanks for the shout out. I love the IDC. They are things I try to do regularly but since we take our lifestyle for granted so often we overlook the accomplishments of the everyday. This is a nice way to keep on track and see how far I've come and to help motivate me to do even more. And the updates on a weekly basis keep me moving in the right direction.
