sort of in the same vein: community gardens

A lot of community gardens are run by city governments, and not super-accessible to their local communities. More anarchist approaches can be developed. Guerilla community gardens?

What about firearms training for members of the LGBT community?

f/Mutual_Aid has a few in it, including the sidebar, which includes the Anarchist Black Cross and disaster relief stuff.

The challenge with FNB and similar projects is that they are easily depoliticized. Mostly, people are familiar with food serves through a traditional charity model that is generally hostile to actual change. Unless you are also doing some kind of political education or serving in a way that is antagonistic, most FNBs tend to become more charity-like over time.

anarchist fix-it shop for bikes, scooters, motorcycles, bio-diesel and hybrid vehicles, no freaking gas guzzlers, unless you're willing to sign an anti-government, anti-oil company manifesto that says you'll use your vehicle for purposes liberatory (anti-poverty, etc.). Basically just an old guy (me) who's good at making machines go safely down the road (certified) who has a sliding scale fee down to parts-only work for hugs and play me some new jams. hydraulic lift.

ive always wanted to make a non profit to teach older and poor people specifically computer skills centered around free software. computers play a bigger and bigger role in our daily lives and it isnt going to decrease. it just doesnt have to be a poor kid whos single mom cant afford much, it could also be that church lady that still uses AOL and is a very large target to exploit. but you know capitalism and all that so i need a job :\

Public libraries have been, and continue to be, albeit implemented by the state. Hence the rise of infoshops. Tool libraries are another idea along a similar vein. Social centers are great, too. They aren't as prominent in the US as Europe.

Arm the homeless? We can call it 'operation bourgie removal'.

Statistically speaking, guns are a suicide tool... so the result of handing a bunch of folks who tend to be more vulnerable in terms of mental health a bunch of pistols will be pretty grim.

it sounds nice but I'm not sure arming a population of people with a high rate of moderate-to-severe paranoid schizophrenia is a good idea.
