Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

In 2020 (OK, maybe not in 2020 but definetely somwhere in the future) I will be living in a house simmilar to the Philip Johnssons Glass House http://philipjohnsonglasshouse.org/history/ , except it would not be just one block, but few of them intersected and piled upon each other. This will make a room for the rooftop gardens, in which I will grow my own food, letting the vines of the grape-vine slide down the glass walls.

Besides grape-vine, I will grow beans and vegetables there, many of them in hydroponic systems to save up some space. I will also have some fruit trees around the house somwhere. That would keep me supplied as far as vegetables and fruit is concerned. For anything else, I will have to travel to the small town nearby. By bike or bus (in the winter) of course. I will use my electromobile only if really needed. I will also bake my own bread at home (we are doing it daily now, so I dont see why would I need to be dependent on bakeries in the future).

So thats my vision. Nothing special really, just plain old vegetables and fruit, but from my own garden, so that I know, what Im eating and I rely on food suppliers as little as possible.

Great vision, Tomas! I'm not familiar with Philip Johnssohn's work-- could you put up a link?

Sorry, I forgot to include the link. Thank you for reminding me. There I fixed it :)

What a great idea! I suggest you grow some mushrooms too...

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

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.
