    Foraging or theft?

    by  • August 19, 2012

    We live next to an empty lot where a friend’s house used to be, and we’ve got permission to garden on that lot if we wanted to. I play fetch with my dog several times a day in this lot, and happened to notice the apples from the tree next door hanging over the...

    Barter

    by  • August 17, 2012

      In these weird economic times, it can really help to have open-minded friends.  Friends who are willing to trade video editing expertise for organic homegrown vegetables and fresh eggs.  It’s a wonderful thing. The transition from the old economic idea back to the even-older one might be rough water for a while.  Rich...

    AREDAY Weekend

    by  • August 16, 2012

      It’s a great idea to have guest speakers talking about principals of sustainability to crowds of business people.  Most business people I know need this kind of thing, but it’s only going to sink in to a point.  This is good business for the speakers; there’s a need to repeat the message, which...

    Denver County Fair Review

    by  • August 16, 2012

      It’s probably fitting that the Denver County Fair was held indoors; it was mostly a representation of indoor, urban Denver.  There was a great representation of urban agriculture, though.  Denver Urban Gardens looked especially posh.  I love the urban ag movement and the promise it holds, so I was delighted to see it....

    Book Report, “The Vegetarian Myth”

    by  • August 4, 2012

    Vegans call this book “abusive”. As someone from a hunting culture (Dad was a game warden, Mom a wilderness guide in Maine) I always felt at odds with vegetarian and vegan culture, but not because of the food.  It was the idea that hunters are brutes who don’t care about Bambi.  Sportsmen are among...
