Dinner down the Road

Where are you? Who are you eating with?
Where did your food come from? How did you get it?
Who prepared it? What is the dish called? What does it taste


I always cook at home. I go in and out of a state called "broke", and the easiest way to eat cheap and still eat will is knowing the right way to grocery shop, store food, and COOK! My girlfriend loves it, although it's created an enabling environment for her: one in which she does not have to… Continue

Volunteering at an urban garden in a major mental hospital

There you go, my first step. As something of a transient around these parts. I've certainly been inspired to do more in the longer term for urban gardening in Buenos Aires. A lot more. That's a longer term thing.

But what, Adam, are you doing today to sustainably improve the food security of one person in your community?

I just volunteered at the vegetable gardens at the public mental hospital down the road. Jeepers! I'll let you know how that goes...I think learning about… Continue

Food Security Infrastructure in Buenos Aires

I'm dismayed to learn that I've found relatively little information on the food security infrastructure that supports Buenos Aires' residents. Strange, I think, given how politicized the issues of tariffs and subsidies are around here. More on my quest to find out how the food production and distribution system works later...

I did find two small things: El Tejar, and Argentine company that works with farmers to manage risk using mapping… Continue

Adam in 2020

Barring catastrophe, I will have finished my PhD, and will live in Austin, TX with my wife and a kid, the city where I grew up and where my wh*** extended family still lives. I will first and foremost be a good husband and dad. I would also like to adopt or offer a foster home, or have space available for housing emerging artists, designers, and craftspeople.

When Alchemy calls me, it will be in order to get my input on reclaiming urban spaces for more appropriate use by the throngs of… Continue

Hey! Nice to meet you. Boston is a great city. You'll love it. There are over 140 community gardens (I don't know the specific number because each year a couple become inactive and others become active) around the city. Many of them have wait lists, but if you look up a garden near where you'll be, I'm sure you can get onto one for the season. Alternately, if you have your own yard, you could start a garden of your own.

Boston Natural Areas Network keeps a list of all the community gardens in Boston, as well as the contact info of those that have available plots and a map so that you can find the garden that will be closest to your location. BNAN also offers gardening workshops and tools to get you started if needed. (http://www.bostonnatural.org/cgFind.htm).

Hope that helps, and let me know if you have any more questions.

I am Kenyan working in Kenya in the development space and sometime I do feel like a foreigner (or perhaps I feel like the community I am working in think I am not one of them??). I have learnt the less I focus on me the better.

Hey Agent Hesler, welcome to UE. Is "feeling like a guest" a good thing?

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

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. 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.
