On Thursday I loaded up my truck with all the supplies I could scrounge here at the farm and from the Co-op and headed down to Portland to the Occupy Maine campsite. Unloaded and turned right back around to get home.
I plan on making this trip every Thursday as long as the occupation lasts. It is what I can do to support this most excellent movement. I can’t go to NYC or DC. I can’t even stay in Portland for longer than the few minutes it takes to unload the truck but I can keep these inspiring folks fed and warm with whatever supplies I can gather for them.
If you wish to donate you can contact me here by making a comment. The Occupy folks keep a list of what they need on their Facebook page under “notes”. Or email me at hgarrold at yahoo.com.
