GivingGarden will be launching their first community gardening and local food enthusiast app in the Spring of 2017. The app will use realtime and crowdsourced data to help gardeners grow the right foods based on their location and community, will enable gardeners and local food lovers to give and get extra home-grown produce, and it will grow communities around food, through profiles and easy knowledge sharing tools. You can learn more about the app, the company and the founding team at GivingGarden.io.

*David Greenwald is the found of the Davis Vanguard a non-profit, news organization that monitors and reports on local government in Yolo County and the Sacramento region. One of their goals is being able to report on important news and information. This past spring the Vanguard launched Yolo Leaks – a way for sources to leak information to their journalists either by sending a message or files. It is a confidential way for people to send the Vanguard information that may be of a sensitive or controversial nature. More info can be found at http://www.davisvanguard.org/yolo-leaks/

*Christian Coulon is the founder of Circle of Bees a non-profit devoted to promoting care for both domestic and wild bees, which are currently threatened nationwide. In September 2016, they launched 100 Hives Davis, a campaign to place living bee-hive monuments in yards and rooftops around town. These will stand in celebration of sub/urban pollinators, their habitat, and their keepers. More info can be found at circleofbees.com
