Why I'm Getting Dirty:  I believe that it is essential for future times that we all be able to feed and care for ourselves and our community. In cultivating my pretty little piece of heaven (in the "ghetto"), I'm taking care of myself (dirt is therapy, veggies are healthy, food is cheaper!), my loved ones (they're eating AND learning) and our planet. It's not that I'm panicking or anything.... I'm preparing.
