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.
