Introduction to Urban ReGardening

This blog originated as an email response to an agent who asked me what I thought of urban farming and hydroponics. As I began crafting my response, I realized it was better posted as a blog for wider distribution rather than a private exchange between myself and another agent. That being said, here are my thoughts on Urban Gardening.

Wherever people live, we need food. People live in urban areas, so urban gardening is a necessity. What approach to use?

When gardening in urban… Continue

ReGardening Eden - Establishing Permanent Sustenance Gardens

A permanent sustenance garden is a garden that naturally renews and regenerates itself through reseeding and sending out shoots and starts all on its own with little human intervention other than harvesting it's bounty. It is a garden that tends itself, waters itself, tills itself, weeds itself, composts itself, becoming ever more lush and abundant year after year. This garden provides sustenance for humans, habitat for wildlife and restores the balance essential for addressing climate and… Continue

Tea Time 2020

In 2020, there will be no need for Alchemy to call me to handle a food crisis.

There will be no food crisis, as it will already have been averted by the re-establishment of permanent sustenance gardens worldwide.

Can we really imagine a world without crisis? Can we really imagine a world of serenity, a world of comfort and abundance, a world of celebration, creativity and beauty? Can we really imagine establishing that world at whatever scale is possible, right now, right… Continue

I don't know if this is cheating . . .

. . . but I choose Jane McGonigal to shadow. Actually, I was already

shadowing her. That's how I found this site in the first place.

Hope you don't mind Jane, but you're it!

I found and bookmarked avantgame.com many moons ago, when I first discovered the ARG genre.

To act on this mission challenge, I sent you a facebook friend request, I book marked your blog, I'm following you on twitter.

Watch for my FarmVille invite!! (I need horse shoes to… Continue

Try living for a week on $2 a day.

Of the 33 secrets, I think this one, "Try living for a week on $2 a day", may hold the very secret to our survival as a species.

Contemplating . . .

. . . are there any creatures other than Human's who depend upon a monetary system to acquire their most basic survival needs such as food and shelter?

. . . is this unique to us?

. . . is currency exchange an evolution or a devolution in the behavior of living organisms?

Hello World!

This is my first blog on Evoke. I learned about this new effort of Jane McGonigal from TED 2010. This looks very exciting. I'm looking forward to participating!

First project: Poking around the site a bit and getting the lay of the land.

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.

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.
