Toward Sustainable Habits and Durable Prosperity
Across the disaffected neighborhood of Vine City in Atlanta, land owners are entrusting Occupy Atlanta to exploit lots of land that have been deemed unprofitable. Permaculture projects planned by Occupy Atlanta on lots that include a few recent acquisitions made through the intermediary of Sally Mason will be beneficial for property values. The parcels of land to be cultivated will also produce more than enough food to feed the community.
Half of the people that gathered today, on May 20th, 2012, to clear the lot at the corner of Vine and Delbridge were community residents while the others were mostly Occupy Atlanta activists.
Powerful images that convey excellently the wonderful work being done by Vine City residents and Occupy Atlanta. Thanks to Sally Mason and the others that are pointing the way to a better future for us all. “Grow food!” – Kwabena
Thanks also for your effort to build “edible schooyards” in Vine City, from which we also have powerful images. Eventually, there will also be posts on this blog merging images of various projects initiated by different people and organizations in Vine City.
Awesome! Thanks for the great photos.
Wow, this is great! It’s so fulfilling doing something that is so genuinely good for everyone.
Thank you Tiffiny. They also deserve a lot of credit for the extra challenge of doing their work in areas considered to be too dangerous to be worthy of urban revitalization.
