Viral Green

If you haven't read Michael Pollan's piece Why Bother, please bother. Global climate change should be our number one concern. I had the same reaction Pollan did when I saw Al Gore's movie: Where are the solutions? Michael Pollan's solution is to plant gardens. A form of multiplying smallness. What's your solution?

Just two years ago, before me moved here, people banded together and bought a centrally located farm that was for sale here on the island. They have turned it into the Gabriola Commons http://www.gabriolacommons.ca/). My husband has jumped in with both wellies and they are breaking ground on community gardens, a potato co-op, a garlic farm, an orchard, and all sorts of community type events. It's amazing and necessary. There is a senior garden and a children's garden and a food bank garden as well as individual plots.

Joelle, that looks soooo cool!!! I couldn't tell: Does everyone do organic and/or biodynamic so there are no pesticides used? It sounds like a wonderful place to live.

Entirely organic! No pesticides. Nothing but love and hard work!
