From Freestyle Gardening to visiting farms and gardens across the country to learn from the amazing things they are doing as well as share their work. We’ll visit permaculture farms, organic farms, off the grid homesteads, sustainability centers, and more. By joining this adventure you’ll not only get to help others but also expand your knowledge and skills.
Imagine a world where families can walk or bike an urban trail to a safe, well-maintained public park where they can play and exercise on outdoor fitness equipment. Where our elders can board a bus for the short ride to the city center where they can access many of the necessary amenities. Cities’ planning, zoning, and infrastructure investment can not only have a positive effect on health but can also foster community and keep some of our most vulnerable populations engaged, active and healthy from ages 8 to 80. What will they do about it?
Access to healthy food is an important tool in obesity prevention. By providing citizens with healthy. affordable, easily accessable alternatives to foods with high caloric content and little nutritional value cities can lead by example in the fight against obesity. Cities have powerful planning, economic development, and public relations tools for attracting and supporting healthy food retailers, farmer’s markets and community gardens. Are they ready to take action?

Planet Earth is an amazing place, but it’s far from perfect. Since the very beginning, ecocycling has operated under the belief that travel is an exchange, not a commodity. When you travel with us, you’re giving back as much – if not more – than what you take away, often in ways you’d never expect. Lets meetup Saturday Dec 10th around 10 am EST and take a walk together! We will be going “live” together on Facebook.com /ecocyclingorg since we like to explore and have scavenger hunts along the way, you can start by clicking the graphic below for directions and remember to bring your smart phone so we can #improvethemap take photos and make memories together!
P.S. Bring comfortable/active work clothes we have been known to get dirty and #cleanup along the way! BIKES are always welcome
