Our garden is visible on Google Maps/Earth! Our latitude longitude 29.463585 -98.527628 . Just put those numbers in the Google Maps search box and it will take you there.

If your garden is visible too you can enter your numbers and we can all take a look from the sky.

10-10-10 as a way to bring attention to local food movement. We're just holding up a sign with 350 on it at the site of our garden for a bit.

One of my brothers bought a run-down, foreclosure house about a year ago. He has decided to not do a lot with ti--just got our other brother to repair the roof so it can sit safely. I encouraged him to go online and get some way to find a local garden club or a Boys and Girls, or Girl Scout group and offer the yard to them for gardening--organically, or at least with some restrictions, or course.

Perhaps the water system in the house could be bypassed and a lockable, outdoors hydrant put in. The group using it can get the water turned on in their name and pay any expenses from that. He hasn't done much but this is better use of standing land than is just paying taxes form no reason. I have driven around small towns that I lived in, written down addresses, gone to the county recorder;s office and found the owner and asked for permission to garden in the property.

I do get some history, too, and then decide if I really want to garden on that land--how poisoned has it been? The Zeolite volcanic ammendment helps absorb toxins, but if the owner regularly puts down herbicides or ant-control, I will pass and buy what I can at the stores.

I think you are right, Eric and Gini, about the need or lack thereof. I Googled a few churches along with "Haiti" and there are plenty of people involved.
Comment by gini lester on June 4, 2010 at 7:18am
I know. I have lack of trust too.

The humanist organization may be a source of getting the seeds to Haiti.
Comment by Josephine Speed on May 31, 2010 at 6:33am
Maybe we could send seeds to Haiti. I have a bunch of muskmelon seeds i saved from heirloom types that were grown close enough to cross, so i cannot call them a particular variety. They should be great. I am growing three of the seeds this year, but haven't a crop yet.

I think it is fantastic. Put those criminals in their place!
There must be a way for US farmers to follow suit. If you haven't yet seen the film Food Inc., it's a must see, and will show Monsanto for what it is.
