Go Go Grapes Salutes Revolutionaries!

Love these folks! They’ll pump you up for changing the world, whether it relates to veggies, or not!

First, here are some inspiring TED talks about vegetable garden power:

Stephen Ritz: A Teacher Growing Green in the South Bronx.

Seriously. You gotta see this guy’s talk through to the end. He’s a wild man, on a mission, empowering so many kids!

Pam Warhurst: How We Can Eat Our Landscapes

Hear how volunteers in one town changed their landscape and thinking.

Noah Wilson-Rich Every City Needs Healthy Honeybees

I’m a fan of native bees because of The Bumblebee Queen but this fellow does the job for honeybees and he is inspiring!

But I don’t have to travel that far for inspiration because there’s a huge community gardening movement here in the Michiana area. Sara Stewart is an amazing leader and there are so many volunteers. See what’s happening in Indiana:  Unity Gardens. I’ll be at their fundraiser tomorrow.

And here’s a lovely book about the enduring meaning of a garden by an Indiana author and illustrator: The Goodbye Cancer Garden. (Janna Matthies and Kristi Valiant)
