News and Muse from Agrigirl
I really enjoyed your journal. It is depressing that human beings could possibly think Haitians deserve in any way the tragedy that has befallen them. It reminds me of when Sharon Stone made a comment after the earthquake in Sichuan, China, saying that it was Karma for their treatment of Tibetans.
I also appreciate your information on community agriculture and sustainability. Not only is it better for the environment and economy, but also better for our bodies to eat locally!
I encourage you to continue raising your voice in our community and sharing your insight with us.
I'm taking content from my blog and putting it in my journal. This is a great community and I look forward to connecting with you and others.
I recently learned about a new worm farm CSA venture sponsored by Bright Neighbor, an innovative platform for community members to collaborate with each other here in Portland. Everything is still in a very experimental stage, but they plan on expanding to other communities in the future. Anyway, I love the idea of investing in locally grown food, and worms too! If you want to know more about Portland's Worm Island, more info is here: http://portland.brightneighbor.com/publicevent?id=341.
What a fun idea! I have a few friends with small worm farms but never thought of it as a CSA! Thanks for sharing. One cool thing that has happened here in AZ is that some schools are using CSA as a fundraiser. So you buy a marked up bag of fresh local veggies delivered to the school and the farmer wins, the school wins and the family wins. These types of innovations are great and really show the power of collaboration - taking a good idea to a great level.
