Interesting vid: Urban Farming in a declining neighborhood
Found this video interesting – a look to our future???
She has a book and blog as well
That was excellent! You made my day, Skipper!
What a great post. This is in all likelihood what the future will look like ……………for those who make it anyway.
I am sending this to a very good friend who lives in Oakland.
Great post, Skipper, Thx.
It’s pretty funny that she keeps her seed collection in old 3 1/2 diskette holders.
That was awesome! Thank you!
Perhaps you should submit this to the Daily Digest. It’s definitely worthy enough to be posted there…
nickbert – would do but don’t have a clue how one submits to the dailydigest
You just send an email to [email protected] with the title of the video or article you’re submitting and the direct link itself. And if you can, a brief snippet of the article or description of the video in question. I tend to use the format:
– (Title): Urban Farming in a declining neighborhood
– (Actual Link): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8yYO4L2ve…
– (Description from the video link): “Novella Carpenter started small, with some plants in an empty lot next to her house in Oakland. A couple of years later, she was tending to a full-blown farm, with goats, turkeys, ducks, pigs, and a robust garden. This video tackles questions of neighborliness (which is more offensive: police sirens or roosters crowing?), environmental poisons (raised beds are key), and the all-important slaughter question. The answer: Yes, she does (and yes, there is some bloody footage).”
– (Name of submitter): Your name here
Alternatively, I’m sure one of us can submit it for you instead and list your username as the original submittee if you prefer that.
Thanks Nick – I tried searching that email address with no luck. That’s simple enough!
