A crash course in changing the world.

The East-West Corner in Kissena Corridor Park Gardens

In 3010, maybe they will remember that we started a garden in the Southeast corner (bottom left in this photograph) of the Kissena Corridor Park Gardens. They will have a big celebration to mark the 100th year of gardening there.


Take a look at our videos from the first weeks of this effort:

This work has become such a passion this spring. Some of the other teachers at The East-West School of International Studies have wondered why. And it has to do with how many of the missions in Evoke can be answered in our garden. It's about Social Innovation, Food Security, Water Crisis, Urban Resilience, and Indigenous Knowledge. Because of Evoke, these words have a resonance that bounces from Africa to India to China and Cuba and back to our wonderful community garden in Flushing, Queens.

It's also about local knowledge and nature writing. So much! Look at the assignments we are using to write about one gardener's plot http://docs.google.com/View?id=d4zfw7d_60dbdsbdd8
