I never thought I would do this, but here I'm, writing a blog...
This blog is about my foodscaping project; which I think is of interest to other people and this is a good way to document the process which I hope will be replicated ALL OVER. I will try to keep it simple and to the point
Foodscaping is a project trying to make vacant urban land productive and ensure food security for neighborhoods in an oil crisis time. It is also an effort to localize part of our food production as I see this as one of the biggest impacts we can have in climate change, as well as creating a closer connection to our environment through the food that we eat, how it grows and where it comes from. Ideally we will build a community in the process, neighbors will meet one another and share their food crops. Crazy, I know!
This first project: the Algarden, is very interesting because, it is truly collaborative and has many levels of sharing. A lot of people have contributed to make it happen and I thank all of you, I could not had been done with all of your time and efforts.
This is really fun for me and I feel incredibly lucky and fortunate to have this opportunity to learn so much and share this knowledge with others. I hope you enjoy reading about my mini urban farm adventures and come visit.
