Midcoast Green Collaborative Forum

Request for naming help.

Filed under: Conversation, Question — Tags: , , — Topher @ 12:48 pm

One of the initiatives that the Midcoast Green Collaborative is working on is promoting the idea of growing your own vegetables (in summer and even in winter, under some protection). There are people in Maine who are growing all their own food, all year round, eating fresh greens from the garden in January.

We are looking for a catchy name for this practice, akin to the Victory Gardens during World War II.

Anyone have any suggestions?

  3. That sounds great Samuel.

    Though perhaps “Planning, Growing, Harvesting and Storing A Family’s Winter _Food_ Needs” ?

  5. Greetings Heather,

    The Poissons’ seem to be pretty interested in keeping their names for themselves. They have trademarked Solar Pod for instance. It seems likely they would object to our using the term for something which didn’t exactly match what they are doing.

    “Solar Gardening” isn’t very descriptive of what we are trying to convey here.

    Thank You Kindly.
