Act 2- The simple act

Every week we go to the grocery store, as we are one of the lucky ones in this city and are employed. Every week we donate to one or two local foodbanks in the form on non-parishable food items. Every week, the charity gets close to running out of food. We ( the Girlfriend and I ) make a community food security issue a priority when we go shopping.

It isn't much, but it is something. But, I wonder what more can be done....hmmmmmm..... Suggestions?

Learn Two- Lack of Employment equals lack of Food Security

I am from a city in Ontario, Canada that has the highest unemployment rate in the country. They built this city around the big Auto Makers in Detroit. It was cheaper to make product in Canada and ship it across the boarder to the big plants, then to make it on american soil because our Dollar was worth very little in comparison to the American Dollar. Then..... The stock market crashed.

Our Dollar went up, 2 of the big 3 American auto makers filed for some sort of bankruptcy and people… Continue

Shadowing someone who seems to know

I have decided to Shadow David Henderson, the CEO of Idealistics http://www.idealistics.org/, a Social Innovation business that integrates technology with social service providers so that they can provide a better service to families in need. I picked him because I believe adding technology to any problem can only help solve it. I am sure that, he will have some good sites and links and blog entry's for me to follow with ideas that may make playing this… Continue

Use what you have

Some of the tips are great, but using what you have to build what you need is key. When trying to think outside the box, you have to know what you have to do that thinking with. examples are great, Japan's food shortage, one of the things you don't have a lot of is SPACE. In order to make this work in my opinion I will have to make the most food out of the least amount of space. I am very interested to see what others believe needs to be done too.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
