A crash course in changing the world.
Today is the day I have started gathering materials for my design. Anything I use must be cheap or free, because this is about people with limited resources executing a design to give them more control over their food situation.
I understand the items in my environment in Detroit, Michigan are going to be different from the materials available in Africa but I need to stick with the spirit of the project. Growing season here is still at least 6 weeks away so I have some time to find materials.
I am going to get my materials from curb shopping ( which is what we call picking things out of peoples trashes ) or from resale stores. The cheaper the better.
I am currently looking for plastic lawn chairs ( I found two today in someones trash, they are cracked but willl still work for me ), 5 gallon detergent or pickle buckets ( empty and with lids if possible ), some kitty litter pans, two by fours or posts, and something to use as trellis material.
My two chairs are a start. I will put up a picture when I get all my materials together. Peace, Michael
