In the Baird's food forest, perennial plants are replacing annuals. Their cob oven and bench warm the cob greenhouse, growing sub-tropical plants in southern Canada!

Chickens are naturally forest birds! Tour Ann and Gord Baird's chicken yard with a fruit tree canopy to protect against predators. Plus a hobbit-ish cob root "cellar" and living roof shed planted in squashes.

Farmer George's organic practices include humane treatment of animals. People search out his pastured products for clean food, and to regain their health.

Tour Seattle Community Farm - an urban farm growing veggies for an ethnically diverse neighborhood. I love the kid's garden with See, Touch, Taste, & Mint beds.

BTW: My local friends started the local recycling center which also has a thrift store...just like you were talking about: http://www.cartm.org/

I'm seeing  a lot of this spirit here in my small community on the north Oregon coast.  It is, in fact, one reason I moved here.  I garden on my friend's land and help other people find places to start gardens.  In fact, there is a lot popping here with regards to local farming and gardening and land-owners offering un-used land to be farmed in exchange for a share of veggies/fruit/meat/eggs.  Also, we have a local email list where we can access free/cheap resources, rides back and forth to portland, jobs, rentals, etc.  I seldom have to purchase any clothing, furniture, pots and pans or garden supplies new anymore.  Why do that when I can get it free/cheap? 

Here's a link to something brand new in our community: http://nvft.org/

I encourage your innovations...If you design it well, it could serve a lot of uses beyond Big Box stores. What keeps people from stealing the cart and using it as their bike trailer for other trips?

Farmer George's pasture-raised animals roam free in fresh air and sunlight. Healthy animals + soil = healthy organic meat.

I'm looking for a Vangelis excerpt that has the exultant, transcendent, triumphant feeling at the end of Chariots of Fire. It has to be something less well known than that....Anybody have any suggestions? (I need about 2 minutes for a video soundtrack). Sure appreciate ideas! ~Janaia
