What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Trust us, we’d rather be farming than collecting your data — but the only way to get rid of all those lawns and grow food is to spread the word and create a movement — so here we are, collecting data so we can give you information to spread!  Therefore, in order to collect your information — we need your permission.

What do we collect? We’re taking names and email addresses.  


We really do love comments!

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Comment data is sent to Akismet for analysis — see Where We Send Your Data, below.


It’s very unlikely you’ll be doing this — but if you upload images to this website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

Our contact forms email your submission to Linda Borghi.  They are stored on our webserver.


Cookies are snippets of data stored on your computer that can be called up from our web server. You may choose not to opt for cookies on this website.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website — with the addition that the other website gets the link information for the page that you’re viewing as well (as a referrer page).

These external websites may collect data about you, use cookies or access their own cookies that are already on your computer, embed additional third-party tracking into the session, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


We have opted to not share our website traffic data or your data with Google or Facebook for analytics or ad retargeting etc.

Our web server logs track your IP address and which pages you have accessed.  This data is logged but not analyzed. It is on an automatic schedule to rotate the web server logs, archive (compress) them, and delete them, and is only viewed by administrators when there’s a problem with a website or access.

Who we share your data with

If you sign up on our email list, Mailchimp will have your email address, they may have your name, they may get information from your browser when you click a double-opt-in form, etc.

In the event of legal service, or threats or abuse, our web server logs (like any of our collected information, knowledge, or data) may be shared with authorities.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

We use the Akismet plugin and service to screen our website comments for spam. The information their plug-in collects typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).  The purpose is to protect our website information, brand, to keep people away from harmful information or links that may victimize website users, and to not have ourselves associated with spammy people and websites.

How we protect your data

Our website is on an encrypted drive on our webserver.  Only 2 admins have root access to the server. Other providers in our network are being screened for proper GDPL compliance and we will remove them from our workflow.
