Got back to Garden for the Environment for a workday on Saturday. It was so good! Working side by side with friends -- walking through the garden seeing January turn to February in the new blossoms and thriving greens. I love winter workdays--it's all about clearing away and preparing for the spring, it's the time of year for thinking and dreaming a new, and if you want to, it's about working so hard you have to peel away your bundled layers.
I'm trying to get better at taking photos of people...but for now here's a few shots of Saturday in the garden.
Look at you beautiful pink flowering currant! Hello, you who show your best color in the midst of winter!
In pursuit of environmental stewardry through food - farming - livable cities - and community.
Not a monologue, but instead a discussion of how these issues intertwine.
And a call to plant a seed, cook your grandmother's favorite recipe, take a long walk with your camera, write a real food manifesto, ride a bike, volunteer, learn the art of weeding, host a potluck, replace your sidewalk with a native plant garden....and finally embrace your political self and participate in local government.
