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

planting day 2015
the clouds and cool wind that accompanied bed building this morning left me less than sanguine about the afternoon's planting climate..but by afternoon the clouds departed, the skies blued, and the sun was shining as multitudes of peppers, potatoes, tomatoes, pole beans, cucumbers, and the odd mashua plant ere sent on their way to a new community garden season...talkative, industrious, jovial , and led by the smiling ellen the crew created the beginnings of an expanded green space on campus...don't you wish you'd been there? i'm glad i was..there will be more posts...more photos...more surprises...and there's always room in the 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.
