Every morning we begin our day with The Optimist Daily, an uplifting newsletter bearing good news for all of us. This morning, we came upon this amazing piece of art, a video outlining the solutions we are all hoping beyond hope will come to make our world a better place to be, with Alexandria Ortega-Cortez. Using ART as a tool to overcome fear and skepticism, this article points out how it can actually be done, how we can stop being afraid of the future, afraid of one another, and afraid of the machine that is so well crafted to keep us in the fear. There are some surprising things in this article, as well as in the video, so PLEASE, spend some time taking it all in, and SHARE it all around. Watch the video here:
We recently happened upon this article describing Garden Pool, and are so encouraged to see that this and so many other projects are moving forward to help improve the status quo for food production and sustainability. This project began in a man’s empty swimming pool in his back yard in Arizona, and has spread to undeveloped countries to help them learn to grow more food with less water, create seed banks, and much more.
Garden Pool is a federally recognized 501(c)3 international public charity dedicated to research and education of sustainable development. Our operations are based in downtown Mesa, Arizona and we have an office in Trinidad & Tobago. We’re working on bringing the GP system to the rest of the world!
The GP (short for Garden Pool) was a one of a kind creation invented by Dennis McClung in October of 2009. It is truly a miniature self-sufficient food-system. Rather than keeping our creation to ourselves, we have decided to share it with others. GPs are being built all over the world offering an easy and sustainable solution to current food production challenges. The Garden Pool system uses more than 98% less water than conventional farming methods, has next-to zero external inputs, uses no chemical fertilizers or pesticides, and raises very nutritious food!
