Agent Shakwei Mbindyo posed a question for us all here: should smallholders in African countries grow food to export to Europe? In her comment Agent Jen Shaffer expanded the question: she knows that many African nations export flowers to Europe. Are either one of these, or both, a good idea for Kenya and Kenyans? Shakwei asks, does "food miles" or other environmental concerns make this a… Continue
It’s March 10, 2020. I’m 62 years old. I’m inoculating wood mulch with Pleurotus spawn in the cool dampness of a cave, a welcome relief from the heat outside. It’s strangely calming to think like a mushroom spore, to let each microscopic bit fall where it has the best chance to awaken and grow.
This cave is a hundred years old. It was dug by hand to store wine casks, back when… Continue
"If you want to make something 10 times cheaper, remove 90 percent of the material."
The secret to this secret is "material." For me, this does not mean physical mass. Objects can be heavy with cultural, intellectual or emotional material, top-heavy with assumptions. Social interactions, in particular: sometimes I find that just removing my ego makes them 10 times better.
Hey Ken, have you seen this:

Hi Ken, I did a little research on you before accepting your friendship request. It is my nature and not necessarily a reflection on you. Obviously, you have passed my review. I am intriged by your request. What is it about my profile or Evoke nature do you find appealing? How may it benefit you? and me? and the greater community?
Be In Good Health.
Hi Ken! Thank you for welcoming me! My fundraising game-I don't know what I'm going to call it yet, it's my first game, but I've got Steve Havelka of the Brick Engine on my side, so I know it will be playable in a month or so. And I have 6 years of fundraising experience under my belt, so I know what the tasks will be. Plus, I can draw, so I can make the avatars and backgrounds. It will be 16 bit, so not too difficult. And there will be some challenging running and jumping sections too, I do want to keep it interesting. I look forward to having more to show you!
Thanks for the welcome! I am so excited about this! I love things that make you think outside the box! something that uses technology is great also. Looking forward to getting in further, wish I had learned about it sooner!
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.
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

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
