A crash course in changing the world.
Before I do this mission or even before I know Urgent Evoke, my grandmother have a mini home garden infront of my house. I never helped my grandmother on gardening before, so I decided to help her gardening by pouring some water to the plants and also cut plants that are parasitic. After I asked my grandmother a few questions about the garden, I found out that my grandmother did actually grow lemons and oranges. From this, I may asked a few of them to give to the local villages that can't…Continue
First I will make group of people that are interested in this kind of topic and then research more about this topic. Then we will make a website about this topic and then if someone needs help, we will go and make some gardens and teach them how to cook the vegetables or how to eat fruits. If they get more than enough food for them. I will ask them to sell some food and tell them to earn their own money for their family, so they can give the garden to the next generation.
I want to help people who start their own garden, but before that, I have to learn about garden and how to plant exactly. If I don't know anything to plant, it's difficult to help people who start their own garden. I need to step forward myself at a local community garden to learn them. I can learn from people who has plant many things for many years and ask that I don't know there. If I wanted to do something for the community to share food, I will buy a garden, but garden is very expensive…Continue

In the Internet, I found that there are many people that don't have any money to buy food or grow their own vegetables. I really want to help them, so I keep thinking of what can I do to help them. Then, I found a solution that maybe really useful for me to help them and for them to get food to eat. My solution is to meet with my friends and together we learn how to grow vegetables on the farm. After three months of learning, I know almost all the thing about growing vegetable. Then, my next…Continue

The big plan: I'll probably do some research about where are the world's most undeveloped countries living now and gather lots of people to help. After finding the location, I would first like to search for a empty field and fertilize the soil so it will fertile for the plants to grow. Next step I will do is, plant all possible vegetables, fruits and herbals for the communities who live there.
If it happens near me: what I will do is... Gather…Continue

I would do research about where in Indonesia have problem but I first I would make a group project so some people can help me out doing this project. When I find a place that has problem about food security, I would contact the person and go there. If the person allows me to help then I will find an big area to start to make garden full of vegetables, fruits, and etc. Also I have to first teach them how to plant so they can do it by themselves too.

Yesterday, my family and I planned that we need to buy fruit trees and our home need to have more trees. We decided to plant it in the backyard. I'm also think that if those trees already produce lots of fruits, I can give that fruit for poor people that can't afford it. Because it's important to eat fruit, fruit contain vitamin that can sometime cure disease.
After we bought trees, I decided to put fertilizer on the trees. Fertilizer is organic chemistry that can improve trees…Continue

Our school has an after school activities called 'Organic gardening' where they plant, and grow the vegetables by themselves. The area where they grow vegetables isn't that big, it would be a great idea if they can get more space to grow more vegetables, the should be more expanded and more people should be involve to make this activity more aware and make it big. This organic garden can also be use as a concept of 'Food security' where we can say that they are already learning how to grow…Continue
My wife and I have been working on an herb and vegitabel garden at our home. Even in the small space that we have dedicated to the garden, we grow way more than enough for the two of us, so we also share the herbs and vegetables with our neighbors whenever they need them. Of course, we aren't anywhere near self-sufficient, but it really makes you realize that self-sufficiency is possible within small groups of families.

Last semester I went to the local food bank and helped them by loading canned foods. We went out as a group for mandatory community service and i want looking forward to it, but i found it to be rewarding.

To help food security I have helped my mum in the vege garden. It may not be a lot but half of what we grow this year will go to the local community centre for those who have no money to buy food. I hope I have provided a back up for those who are at the bottom of the wealth pyramid.

My objective was to increase someone's food security near me.
So the question is how to help respectively whom should I support?
Generally in Germany, the country I live, and like in other industrialized countries we have no problem with food security. On the contrary we have a problem with high abundance of the food. Meanwhile, the food is usually thrown away when it doesn't look enjoyable anymore although you can still eat it. And it is so unjust because on the world there…

Last week me and some friends agreed on a weekly date for breakfast on Wednesdays. Since we are students, we are used to get up late and our first meal is usually lunch. That is problematic, because we miss almost half of the day. That is why we want to meet at least once a week to celebrate breakfast together. We will use this time to talk about different emerging topics. Everyone is bringing something with him, always according to his portmonnaie. So it is secured, that there is enough…Continue

My solution is Growing vegetables at home. By growing their own vegetables, reduce waste and Evoke protection awareness of food.
In modern society, more and more people lack the common sense of food.When we are accustomed to fast food, few people understand that food hard to come by.By learning to grow their own vegetables, you can allow people to pay more attention to the protection of food resources.

Last week i've visited my parents and have helped them to work in the garden. Important to this mission was to plant some vegetables. Salad, tomatoes, cuc**bers and different spices. It produce only small costs to cultivate vegetables. But more important is that the food is very healthy.

About six weeks ago I helped plant some cabbage and silver beet plants in my family's garden and I think we'll be able to pick and then eat some of those vegetables in another six weeks. It will help us to save money and having the vegetables ready to pick at any time will be very convenient.

In order to help people have food, I could set up a programme at school or in the community, to help the needy get food. I could get people to donate food to give to places like the City Mission or a charity of some sort. I could help grow the less fortunate people vegetable gardens to give them healthy food for their everyday lives.

A couple of friends and I recently decided to start up a roof garden, to help decrease our reliance on outside food sources. As a result, we built a roof garden and started planting some beans. Here is our results of one plot:
In time, I believe that we will be able to sustain ourselves more…

This coincided well with our science project. We decided to simulate a roof-garden in our school, in order to see if the idea of a roof-garden would actually help with the required task. We used aluminium foil to simulate normal roof conditions. We found that the temperature of a garden, with plants, was far less than the temperature of just the foil. This showed a success. This, I believe, can be turned into a major project throughout the world. This can be cheaply applied, and can be…Continue
