O fresh food I 100% agree with that I just don t want to read about it p35 I believe that this ality of grit the ability to withstand setbacks and disappointments is important to teach children than any facts we can cram into their headsp63 We all need a healthy environment and a community that lets s fulfill out potentialp73 The benefits of the hard work that you do now may not be felt for a very long time But if you plant seeds and continue to tend to them and keep faith in the harvest good things can comep111 this experience should teach them that hard work brings rewards though the payoff Can Often Be A Long often be a long comingp121 The worms taught me I couldn t expect to put them in a box with inadeuate resources and have them do well They reuired husbandry The worms also made me reflect again on what it took to improve the lives of people You couldn t place folks in the middle of a blighted neighborhood without a strong family nit and without easy access to healthy food and expect them to thrive If you could create an environment in which people felt secure and healthy though you could provide the possibility of a better lifep129 I know from experience that it helps to make a good plan better lifep129 I know from experience that it helps to make a good plan you launch into any project Don t spend so much time on your plan however that you never get around to doing something As Teddy Roosevelt once pointed out it is better to be the man or woman in the arena the one whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood than it is to be a person who just talks about doing things Be a person of actionp164 When worms finished digesting the compost in a bin I laid a sixteenth inch mesh screen on top of the pile and placed pre composted bananas or other recently fresh food on the top of the screen More than three arters o This is an inspiring and progressive look at rban gardening and farming Will Allen bought some abandoned greenhouses in Milwaukee and over time he turned them into a massive food growing operation He grows fruit and vegetables he composts and he even figured out a way to raise fishHis mission was to provide healthier food options for the rban poor In inner city communities throughout the United States it is easier and often less expensive to buy a Twinkie or frosted cupcakes or a box of fried chicken than fresh vegetables or fruits Our current generation of young people rarely eat fresh foods don t know how to prepare them and in many cases can t even identify them They have become entirely dependent on a food system that is harming themAllen shares his family story and the stories of some of his coworkers This is a moving and inspiring book and it points out some serious problems in our culture and society Allen has worked hard to be involved in the community and to teach as many people as he can about ways to grow healthy foodFood should be a cause for celebration something that should bring people together The work of my adult life has been to heal the rift in our food system and to create alternative ways of growing and distributing fresh food My return to farming was a kind of homecoming As a young man I felt ashamed of my parents sharecropping past I didn t like the work of planting and harvesting that I was made to do as a child I thought it was hard and offered Little Reward I Fought reward I fought family s history Yet the desire to farm hid inside meI recommend this book to anyone interested in rban gardening or our agricultural system. Er has sought to prove that local food systems can help troubled youths dismantle racism create jobs bring rban and rural communities closer together and improve public health Today Allen’s organization helps develop community food systems across the countryAn eco classic in the making The Good Food Revolution is the story of Will’s personal journey the lives he has touched and a grassroots movement that is changing the way our nation eat.
