    We should start threatening to not compost and recycle if we can't get the whole RW gang on here

    I really love the article called "Māori women leading local sustainable food systems". It is about the positive impacts of community gardens on building unity and connectivity while simultaneously promoting sustainability (and self-sustainability!) through creating food systems that are more equitable, harmonious with nature, and don't depend on creating food surplus that exacerbates principles of control.
