I have created a Savannah FNB group in karrot.world. Everything went really smoothly! Though I do feel a bit lonely having left the more populous playground… haha. I will work on having local members join the online platform too.
What have you found as the best technique for bringing other IRL group members onto the karrot platform? To be honest the others are pretty comfy with Facebook - which is a shame. However, I think the group will be excited by some of the administrative features that karrot offers. I’ll be able at least to get a few core members to check it out.
In the meantime, I will maintain the karrot group myself to get familiar with the software.
Yeah FNB is pretty awesome. I’ve learned A LOT from a few experienced members who have used their skills to help folks in hurricane-devastated Puerto Rico and regions of the US. Most likely these aid skills will come in more demand as global warming makes the weather even more crazy, not to mention as economic inequality increases… So I feel good that I have skills that will be able to help out.
Thanks for sharing a bit about the German and global foodsharing community! I’m really excited to learn more. I really enjoy that this platform is international. Sadly my Spanish and Italian is atrocious, 但我能说中文. Perhaps now would be a good time for me to learn some survival German.
I will try to share a photo or two of our weekly activities on this foodsaving.world platform. I look forward to seeing and learning about other folks experiences!
