A crash course in changing the world.
Last week I decided to start an urban farm from my own. I took this decision because I thought why not? How hard it can be? I saw an example of a mexican urban farm here in the evoke network and that motivated me to do it to.
First I needed the basic kownledge for growing a garden. So I surfed the web to find something like a handbook for it (here in evoke are some tips about it)
Then I had to find where to buy all the things for doing it so. That was the hard part: there aren't seed stores in the city. All of them are near the places where the farms are, outside the city. So after an obsesive research I found one store in the city where to buy the seeds and all the stuff that I needed.
So I chose cuc**ber, tomato, pumkin, and green pepper seeds. Also I bought some green beans plants.
There's a special mixture of dirt for the seeds to grow, so I bought that to.
In the aftermath I spend almost 30 dlls to buy all the stuff.
Now I'm waitting for the plants to grow, that should took between 10 and 20 days.
The plan is to give away almost all of the plants to my friends and people I know so they can start their own urban gardens. Planting the seeds is the hard step, the rest is just patience.
This is how I'm going to act to comfront the food security issue, by being an example and hoping to start a trend in my community.
Here's the video and the photo album of the wh*** process that I just wrote about.
