Look around you! Who’s there? Meet your neighbors. Get together. Put your green lawns to work. Yoke hearts and brains together and focus like these folks did, to re-create the world.
The Urban Farming Guys is one of the most inspirational and educational websites I’ve ever come across. Forget what’s crashing down all around us. Be a part of the beauty that’s arising from the muck! These families decided to leave comfortable suburbia for a blighted wasteland inside Kansas city where they put their energy, drive, and creativity to work creating self-sustaining food and energy systems that feed each other, and by extension, the world. Yes, we can.
As Van Jones said, we never said “he can,” (referring to Obama, who seems to be, and perhaps inescapably, given his “role,” wallowing in the muck and unaware of the arising beauty), we said WE CAN. Here’s their intro video. There are lots more on their site. Thanks to nextworldtv.com.
