TED Talk Thursday – Roger Doiron: My subversive (garden) plot

For those of you not familiar with TED Talks here is a brief summery of them from www.ted.com:

“TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences — the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford UK each summer — TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and Open TV Project, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize”

According to www.ted.com:

“A vegetable garden can do more than save you money — it can save the world. At TEDxDirigo Roger Doiron shows how gardens can re-localize our food and feed our growing population.”

“Roger Doiron is dedicated to helping individuals grow their own food. He is the founder of Kitchen Gardeners International — a network of 20,000 individuals in 100 countries. In 2008, he started the “Eat the View” campaign, a successful bid to get the White House to plant a kitchen garden–which was planted (by none other the First Lady) in March, 2009.”

I hope you enjoy this VERY entertaining and important video:

  1. With the number of foodbanks and soupkitchens that have sprung up to feed the hungry of this world, this idea of community gardens, patio and balcony gardens based on kitchen supplies is the best solution since sliced bread.
