How I Built Stone Walls to Improve Food Security

To improve food security in my neighborhood, I built stone-walls on a sloped hillside near our home. The walls prevent erosion, allowing my family to grow herbs and vegetables in place of grass. Growing our food reduces transportation costs by limiting the number of times we travel to the grocery store. Because …

Yes, let's do chat sometime! Very interested in getting your thoughts on the Peace Innovation class (strangely I referred all sorts of people to both the FB and Peace Innovation cla**** but failed to audit them myself). Also advice on gardening is most helpful right now.

Saw your reference to persuasive technology. Did you study under BJ Fogg? I'm a researcher for BJ Fogg at Stanford, very interested in games, mass collaboration and improving the world. I'm the voice behind @PeaceDot on Twitter and FB and the new head of the Peace Innovation Lab.

... And I'm contemplating planting a more ambitious vegetable garden this spring.

Hey James,

I liked seeing some of the projects you have been involved in and I'm looking forward to hearing about the projects your planning once the snow melts (I can relate!).

If you would like to debrief on any of the process aspects of the projects you've been involved in you could submit it under a Special Agent Mission: Power of Process

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.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
