DIY Food Department: Urban Gardens Deepen and Diversify

I love this! It is happening, folks. Get in on the action, wherever you are, however you can. I just read that as of January 1, 2014, the US and Japan are allowed to sell each other’s “organic” produce without labeling origins. Um, Fukushima area has loads of organic farms. Personally, I would prefer to grow my own. You don’t need to have an insanely wild yard that takes all your time to transform into permaculture paradise. You could start with a small plot of square foot gardening, a window garden, community garden space, neighborhood yardshare, or a Garden Tower. With food prices set to skyrocket, you probably won’t get a better return on investment than fresh, free produce grown by you. Next best and equally important? Support your local organic farmers. Buy directly if you can, through CSA’s and at the local farmers market. These folks work so hard to provide us fresh, real food. We need to support them if we want to continue having such options. Bon Appetit!

    Yikes! I don’t want Fukushima produce either!

    Yes, it is indeed happening. In taking a long walk through the city, I saw countless yards with raised beds, plots, greenhouses, lean-to sheds, cloches, and so forth. Front, side, back, by the garage, you name it: people are sensing it coming.

    You’ve probably already done it, but if not, could I suggest you put one of your orgonite pucks into a rain barrel, and use that charged water for your garden?



    • Kieron, that’s great news! I have had an orgone puck on top of the rain barrel on our porch for several weeks now. Just yesterday, I moved it next to a holly bush that’s struggling with much larger trees to compete for water. I also ordered some UV and water resistant decals for our rain barrels. I had intended to paint them, but I’ve run out of time. Instead, they’ll have The Green Man, Mother Nature and some Tree of Life images — small ones, but enough to set the intention. I’ll also put some orgone right by the spouts. 🙂

    Great idea! I may borrow it! 🙂 Setting water on or near, or letting water run over the orgonite gets the water charged and any that sinks into the ground, I’m told, will carry the charge further into the soil and groundwater. I’m unclear how long the charge lasts but if you have ever tried the ice test with your freezer, some water and an piece of orgonite, you’ll see the effect it has on water, and us. 🙂 I tried it in April and any water I put in the freezer since then, *without any orgonite* next to it, continues to show the effect so the freezer is charged with orgone energy. Amazing.
