Labor instead of chemicals.
Diversity in place of monoculture.

things are moving along in the community garden..the sun has come out after nearly an inch of rain over two days and the plants are responding...one of the cherry tomato plants is flowering ( top photo ) nine days after planting...there are forty maize plants up and soon it will be time to plant the beans...second c=act of the three sisters' guild...the potato in the third photo brings the spud population up to thirty plants ( we are really running heavily towards staple food crops form the new world...throw in the jerusalem artichokes and i believe we have the immigrants evenly matched )...let's not forget root crops...the turnips are producing as well...moving towards june the season is heating up...stop by sometime, there's quite a bit of planting yet to do and then there's the harvest ( not to mention maintenance ) it is an interesting place to be.
an industrial worker and university student (everyone needs a hobby...my hobbies have evolved and, to keep things straight, i have left my formal student career behind for reasons that are too detailed to delve into here...continuing to be a student of life however and not adverse to learning...stasis is death ) sliding down the back side of middle age...a social loner with collectivist leanings...explain that.
