The East-West Corner in Kissena Corridor Park Gardens

In 3010, maybe they will remember that we started a garden in the Southeast corner (bottom left in this photograph) of the Kissena Corridor Park Gardens. They will have a big celebration to mark the 100th year of gardening there.

Take a look at our videos from the first weeks of this effort:…

Mass Transit in a Crisis in NYC

No matter what crisis hits NYC the mass transit system will probably shut down. One of the memories I have from 9/11 is that of people walking everywhere. No matter what the crisis, it will stop mass transit. To be resilient, we need to learn to get places without subways and buses and cars. We need a system of bikes and walking paths and other alternatives.

What would have to change if everybody rode their bikes to and from work?

Here's a map of my daily commute via bike. It may seem a little crazy, and maybe it is just a coincidence of history, but I've been biking or running to and from work ever since 2002. I started running right after 9/11, slowly increasing my distance until I was able to bike or run quickly enough to… Continue

Hi Paul, thank you for the invitation; enjoyed all the conversation and insights. You are working on some very interesting projects, with young people who are fortunate to have such a flexible and innovative teacher. Hope the possible photo collaboration and share with New Zealand occurs... Congratulations on your ongoing broadcast sessions. May all your gardens grow well--including the one in Queens. Thanks again, shout out to your colleagues and students, Michele

There are others on evoke also with lots of gardening experience (don't know about their availability: Ursula Kochanowsky and Nick Heyming among others.) My little guys might wake up but hopefully won't cause a commotion! I will look forward to it. want to send me an inbox message with contact details? thank you again. best, michele

Hi Paul, I actually have to walk my 2 little boys to school at 9 am, and then am staying to read with my 1st grader's class (and our pre-school girl) for an hour or so. I don't actually have the tech equipment to skype here (just relocated back to US from Japan, but perhaps we can figure out how to chat at some point? Otherwise, I will be happy just to read blogs from you and your students as I have time--maybe you could send me a message with links of some you would like read specifically--or I will just rotate reading as always... I thank you for your offer--and if there is some way to help your students, I am happy to reach out!! Great work--thank you for being such a great teacher and guide. Best regards, Michele

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.
