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

Listen to the Right People

It's impossible to find a good solution to a problem you don't understand. I think that the first place to start when looking for a solution is understanding the problem by listening to the people it impacts the most. The knowledge one gains creates a foundation for a solution to be built on.Listening to the right people also leads to understanding the circ***tances of the problem: what other social, cultural or political elements contribute to this problem? What has already been tried? Who…See More
