Become A Member of the Detroit People’s Food Co-Op #motownmom

DPFC & KAN Books Co-Op Member Mama Hanifa Adjuman Speaking during DPFC Annual Meeting 2019.
For the past several years there has been a movement to change the culture of food in the city of Detroit. Food sovereignty. What does it look like to own what you eat and not have your food be controlled by outside forces? What does it mean to not only be a headcount in a community meeting but a decision maker on what actually happens in the spaces that impact us most like where we get our food.

Today is a great day to affirm sovereignty in our food system. Become a member of the Detroit People’s Food Co-Op or donate to create an opportunity for another Detroiter to become a member as we move us closer to being a city with a community controlled and owned grocery store in the North End neighborhood of Detroit.

Happy Winter Solstice – December 21st #motownmoxiemom – It’s cold! What are you doing to save money on heat?

Fact: The winter solstice, also called the hibernal solstice, occurs when either of Earth’s poles reaches its maximum tilt away from the Sun. This happens twice yearly, once in each hemisphere

It’s getting cold. And we’re finding ways to keep the heat down, while saving as much money to pay for upcoming bills as it gets colder

  1. We made sure we’re on a money saving plan through our gas/electric department
  2. Closed all drafts around the house with blankets or window coverings
  3. Keep the thermometer no higher than 70
  4. Layer – before touching the therometer we added more layers. Dollar Tree socks are great and we had fleece blankets from the thrift store.
  5. Close vents in the basement so you’re not heating unnecessary areas

And for safety, plug electrical heaters directly in the wall and if you buy new make sure they have a tip over function.

2022 Memory of the Year #motownmoxiemom – What’s your favorite memory? #

Out of all the pictures i had in my phone, this one made me smile.
You see just a planter with the lid on the outside.
I see an ingenious 15 dollar saving per plant
Terra Cotta water drippers cost between 15 to 65 dollars.
I had these in my storage for a couple of years with nothing to do with them.
So I flipped them upside down, glued the bottom inside and used the hole at the bottom to fill with water. Worked beautifully and through the summer my plants didn’t dry out or die on long trips.
It may seem silly to you, but to me, it was small and efficient.
So this means a lot to me because it still shows me that no matter how old i get I’m still smart.

“When you think back on 2022, how will you remember this year? I’d love to hear your best memories in the comments!”
