The Stop - Thanks Lee!!

Poverty is the main cause of hunger. In Toronto, where I live, the economic situation has caused food bank visits to increase dramatically.

There are people who are in dire straits, with much worse problems then we have here in Toronto, but we must take care of our community, and hopefully gain insight into how to solve these problems overseas as well.

What you have is more important then what you lack

Out of all the points in that doc**ent, realizing the importance of what I have was the one tolken of knowledge that spoke to me above all others. Every day I find myself wishing I had something else in order to fulfill a task, a goal or even a dream. It's tough sometimes to see what you're capable of, when it always feels like something is lacking, but this applies to all aspects of your life, not just social innovation.

Hi,
I posted a video from The Stop in Toronto, about community gardening. If you haven't acted on food security yet, perhaps this is something we could work on with others in Toronto? Here's the link:

"I love that you've brought this to attention. An extensive database of uncommon but resistant and hardy plants/foods could be developed and organized by climate. Ease of growth and processing should also be taken in to account. I will try to…"

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**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

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.
