You can grow your own food. And we can help!

An inspiring video: watch an 11-year-old call bullshit on the industrial food system!

Mar 15, 2011

This kid should be our secretary of agriculture. Enjoy!


I know a bunch of people have reposted it on Facebook and their blogs, and it got >500 hits on mine yesterday, so it's getting seen for sure. I like the idea of a gardeners party. Almost as much as a garden party.
The TED platform makes it even easier to repost with some bloggers & Facebook pages. I hope that lots of people will repost this appealing, true video. Einstein said that if you really know what you're doing, you can explain it to "an intelligent ten year old." All the ten year olds I have known are of that sort. This boy would get cheers from them & all the XX year olds too. :-) Ashville looks to be in the Carolinas, where KGI has some in-depth gardeners. One of them - who can name himself - has suggested that maybe we need a "gardeners party." We certainly do need candidates for leadership who understand how the sciences describe the state of our precious biosphere accurately & especially all the life sciences!
Peter, Thanks, what a great kid.
Yeah, maybe there's hope for us after all.
