Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

I recently moved to Toronto and with the move I started working in a new office. About a week after I started at the new office, people jokingly told me to go find the way to get to the roof because they had some kind of patio and garden up there. Well, at the time, we were still in our "breaking in" period, and I had just found out that contrary to what my colleagues had told me...Canadians do NOT like to be called American just because they reside in NORTH America. Anyways, about 2 months ago, the weather got nice for a few days and I decided to find out if there really was anything on the roof because I had noticed that other buildings did in fact have patios on them (including the apartment I live in). So I went looking for a way to get to the roof, and was surprised to find that there wasn't much of a patio, but there was actually something that kind of looked like it could be a garden. Turns out the owner of the building likes gardening and doing things to improve the neighborhood, and has started a garden to grow some flowers and vegetables on the roof (not very successfully). Since then I have gone up to eat lunch on nice days, but hadn't given the garden much thought, until coming onto this site and speaking with people like Nick Heyming. For those of you who don't know about what Nick is doing, please check out his profile and read his blogs. Anyways, 3 days ago I asked the building owners if they would like some help with the garden and I will start with helping them resoil the planters next week :) I'm doing some research now to see what kinds of things we might be able to grow, and I'll upload photos as we make progress.

Excellent you are making an effort to learn about garden and rooftop gardening. I have a friend here who took a market gardening class with me has has put in a roof top garden on a building he owns.

Uploaded some pictures of the rebirth of the rooftop garden. We're building some new planters, replanting in the old ones, and adding new dirt.

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
