Digging the Change

I have never been so dirty on the New Year.

In honor of the birth of 2011, one of my closest friends and I embarked on a major project - redesigning my existing garden. The goal is to use my space more effectively so that I can grow more food, use less water, and preserve soil. My target for the year is grow at least 50% of my family's vegetables. 

To be honest, however its not just about us. In our time of food insecurity and increased financial hardship, I hope to encourage others to champion creativity, community effort, and self reliance. This little plot of earth can be a place for creativity and collaboration. In CyberFeast, we've seen how food can bring people together with a creative end. Can you imagine the change and creative power that can come from a living, evolving, and sustaining environment?

I'm digging that change.

Thank you for this invite. I am excited about Cyber Feast and sent off my napkin Friday. The Omnivore's Dilema is so inspiring. Gave me hope. Currently I am using illegal seed..Oh MY!!!!! Makes me feel daring. Our garden supplies us with so much that we need not question. My daughter has horses, do I need to say more, and I still recall how to hand pick potato bugs as I did in childhood.
I am returning to my quilling now. Getting ready for a wearable show next year. Building a dress.

Happy New Year 2011

Wishing everyone a great start to 2011! We started with pure sugar & lots of fries! As far as food goes, broke any kind of healthy New Year's resolution so it made it more fun to re-do the resolution today. This year want to pay more attention to locally grown food and try to get to the urban farmer's markets when they are in season. The Omnivore's Dilemma is a source of inspiration - super book if you have a chance. Grateful to be able to celebrate with friends and family and hope your year is one where dreams come true!
