List of eco-sustainability resources
One of the benefits of group living is the ability to share resources in a more efficient way. This is a small collection of recipes which can be made with inexpensive ingredients and in little time, using coop labor. These recipes are aimed at people without significant culinary training, and are intended to be foods which can keep for a long time. Enjoy!
