If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.

The critters eating your landscaping know what they’re doing.

Instead of high maintenance grass lawns, how about lush gardens that nourish us? Why not planted pots of veggies in front of every store front? Corn stalks (GMO-free) sprouting outside the police station? Fruit trees outside of the doctor’s office—grab an apple on the way out and call me in the morning.

In this humorous TEDtalk, Pam Warhurst tells the story of how she and a growing team of volunteers came together to turn plots of unused land into communal vegetable gardens, and to change the narrative of food in their community.

“We’re not doin’ it because we’re bored. We’re doin’ it because we want to start a revolution.”

Ah… The power of small actions.
