Hometown: Bronx, NY
December 28, 2012
If time permits, I have plunged into "foodie" meetups like SAVE farms, NYC farms, beekeeping, and eco-friendly building. Please keep me posted!
A friend has a front yard he was told he could use, but he didn't trust what I told him about permaculture (he had a book on horticulture) so nothing grew last summer but some sunflowers seeds of which he was feeding to local birds!
I like to think of schools (colleges as well as elementary schools), banks (Cathay Bank and others have foundations), and dislocated members of the community (Seniors, veterans, parolees and formerly incarcerated folks, and the disabled) coming together to make food, herbs, and a meaningful network grow!
I am coming to terms with my relationship with plants. I look forward to this meetup!
Terrific, this truly progressive movement cuts across political and racial barriers in seeking out and devising solutions for crises.
