There a good bit of brainstorming going on over at Tyson's Voices for Hunger, about alternative ways to prevent food insecurity (that is, not knowing where one's next meal will come from) Feel free to read the responses and make your own suggestions.
Also, there's a nice op-ed piece at the New York Times, about getting to know your neighbors. Now, there's a crazy idea. You can get to it through FI Space, which is a great resource for all you non-profits or anyone for that matter, who's busy moving toward the future.
This (above) is part of the community garden space at East Nashville Cooperative Ministry. It was taken about a month ago so I'm hoping it looks a bit different now. This blog is going on a little day trip and will return later this afternoon.
