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

the eleventh bed is in at the community garden, although it won't be completely filled with soil until tomorrow...took about two hours start to finish...it is planted at the apartment building end of the garden, perpendicular to the back row of beds ( so it is accessible from all four sides ) with four feet of space between it and the back row...on planting day we can plant another bed on the washington street side of the garden...the next can go in the center and we can work back symmetrically towards the to ends...right now it has four hundred pounds of compost and top soil added...i'm thinking another eight hundred should fill it...tomorrow.
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.
