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.

Littleskipper-

Perhaps you should submit this to the Daily Digest.  It's definitely worthy enough to be posted there...

Littleskipper-

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):

...

- (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.

- Nick

Thanks Nick - I tried searching that email address with no luck.  That's simple enough!
