I had been sitting lost in thought. All of the sudden the food I had been absent-mindedly playing with on my plate caught my attention. Of course this was no ordinary meal. This was a special dinner being hosted by the Ambassador in her residence to celebrate the successful end of a project we had all been working on for years.

But more than just being excellent (which it was), it had just dawned on me where it came from. Not that anyone who had not been paying attention to…

Four evoke agents got together to brainstorm what we could do to learn more about food security and develop a plan to act locally. After preliminary discussions we realized that we wanted to learn by doing and decided to develop a small ("four-door") garden and test urban farming techniques, such as those found in this article. These techniques are specifically designed for getting maximum yield out of small garden… Continue

ACT1: Reynaldo Diaz

I have chosen as my hero a gentleman named Reynaldo Diaz. The problem that needs heroic action that he has chosen to address is the lack of access to safe drinking water for so many people around the world. "Every year there are 1.7 million deaths, mainly children under the age of five, due to diarrhea caused by unsafe water. The U.N.’s Millennium Development Goal is to halve the number of people unable to reach or afford safe drinking water by the year 2015. Achieving this would require… Continue

"I love that you've brought this to attention. An extensive database of uncommon but resistant and hardy plants/foods could be developed and organized by climate. Ease of growth and processing should also be taken in to account. I will try to…"

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.
