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

Charleston has an exhibit opening up with pieces of old african art and sculptures. Every piece of art, quilts and dolls, is beautiful and engaging in their own way… Many of them address the mermaids that followed the slave ships to return the souls…

Passing on Indigenous Knowledge

In the future, indigenous will refer to the populations of different planets. The wisdom I would like to pass from Earth is to remember the lessons of the past and not to press Earth's culture on other planets but instead to merge them.See More
