Dinner After a Decade

In March 2020, I'll still be in a Brooklyn apartment with close friends. We'll be eating produce we've grown ourselves on our rooftop garden or a local lot in town, and may invite other friends over who will bring produce they've grown; we'll share what each other does not have. Each of my friends and I might prepare a different meal; I might make vegetable paninis. We will eat all we've made and not waste it; whatever can't be eaten will be used to make compost…

Urban Farming in Brooklyn

Living in New York City, I'd say the biggest issue of food security in my community is making sure the homeless and impoverished have a healthy diet.

I did some searching for Brooklyn-specific programs, and found Brooklyn Rescue Mission. BRM cares for a plot in Bed-Stuy called the Bed-Stuy Farm, where they nurture and grow organic produce and distribute it to those who are at-risk of hunger in their…

The evolved nature sanctuary: a community space for all species, even humans!

I'm at the very beginning stages of starting up a project to promote intelligent land use that uses small garden plots of public and private space to provide a healthy living sanctuary for the wh*** community - focusing on the four main elements of a thriving living system:

1. physical needs: food, water, air, warmth, and light

2. emotional needs: a feeling of personal connection with others…

Imagining a food future

I am a mother, a wife, an activist, a student of life.

My meals are not just about the food, but about the experience. Every meal is shared with loved ones, eating on-the-go is no longer vogue - meals are a time to share food, thoughts, ideas, questions, and more. In the past ten years improvements to the meat production industry worldwide has meant less of a burden on our environmental systems, but I and my family have remained vegetarian. The food we eat isn't that different from… Continue

On-Campus Farming

An NGO based in our nation's capital is touring the country and engaging environmental committees of different universities. Their aim is to explore the possibilities of utilizing university campus as a place to grow crops of various kinds.

To someone like me who has not felt the warmth of the soil between his fingertips since he was a small child this offers a most extraordinary opportunity to clear the cobwebs built during years of intense book-cramming. This is something we were… Continue

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.

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.
