Organic rather than transgenetic.
Labor instead of chemicals.
Diversity in place of monoculture.

the three sisters bed is moving along well with its tag along peppers and pod corn ( top photo ) the sweet corn ( second photo ) was more than "knee high" days ago and is pushing past waist high these days..it is an 80 day corn and will be done in mid-august...those jerusalem artichokes ( third photo at the back...spuds in front ) i was sweating being a foot high at the end of last month are nearly as tall as i am and that bodes pretty well for a good harvest...the bottom photo shows that we are becoming very visible form the thirty fifth avenue side of the garden...lots of attention...hoping that translates into community.
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.
