Traveling to the farm to volunteer, visit, etc. is great but has the potential to consume unhealthy amounts of fuel if everyone travels separately and frequently. Some people also choose not to own a car, lending a ride to these individuals helps support their choice. To address fuel concerns I’ll be posting a tool or site link to help people coordinate travel. A great consequence of carpooling is members get to know one another better.
For now I’ve set up a group for the farm at eRideShare.com. Here is a direct link to our group http://prairiegreeners.erideshare.com/ The password for our group is ‘farm.’ You will need to register, but its fast and simple. You can place a listing to offer a ride or reply to an ad once you’ve navigated to our group.
Let me know if you know a better tool or site we could use to coordinate carpools; this one seems practical but I can imagine better.
