FIF-Community-page-cover

The Food Is Free Project, Burien chapter, has arrived!

The FIFP was founded in 2012 by some folks who wanted to see their neighborhood come together and support one another in the area of food security. From the ground up (pardon the pun), they have expanded through grass roots action (more puns…sorry) to encourage home gardening, food sharing, and neighborhood connectivity. And they have done it beautifully!

About Simplicity Rebel

At our house we enjoy simplicity. We enjoy spending time together, sharing great meals and fun in the garden, including friends and family to relax and revel in good company and low stress! Of special interest to me is the art of what I refer to as "prosperous frugality". In other words, living simply and inexpensively while maintaining an attitude of prosperity and abundance. Frugality does not mean doing without necessities or feeling deprived. Rather, it is a lifestyle of using what we NEED, graciously sharing with others, and cultivating an attitude of gratitude in all things. This mindset led me to establish The Community GATE...a Give And take Experience, an organization dedicated to strengthening our communities one at a time through personal involvement and neighborly responsibility. I live in the suburbs. I do not live on a huge farm, nor do I have the luxury of an unlimited budget. However, we believe that even with a small piece of ground and a bit of ingenuity, we can bring a significant amount of produce to our table and have enough to share with our neighbors and loved ones. Also dear to my heart is the statement "a penny saved is a penny earned". Sometimes we need to reach out and create more income, while at other times we simply need to carefully reduce wastefulness so that our income goes further. From creative use of kitchen leftovers to thrifty uses of water for the garden, sometimes it is a matter of trimming the waste and using resources we didn't even know we already had! I enjoy bringing old skills back to the modern age, always learning new things along the way! Many skills such as bread baking, sewing, even gardening without excess chemicals or machinery will soon be lost altogether if we do not purposely keep them alive. Not everyone will employ all of these skills, but self-reliance and personal independence demand that someone carry the torch...it is my goal to carry it well and pass it forward!
