Many blessings & thanks to Ms. Ana Ortiz and the many People and organizations that came out to support a community garden near Chestnut Hill Apts. We look forward to more expressions of solidarity into the future. This compilation was put together by Overstanding Vision (Ithaca) in homage to the People who attended the build!!
Ms. Ana Ortiz (Chestnutt Hill Apts), Gardens4Humanity, the 350.org Global Initiative and many Ithaca community members came together to organize. The goal was to plant a community permaculture garden in Ithaca as part of 350.org's global work party. The garden will sequester carbon, bring the community together, and empower citizens by helping to increase food security.
The event was the beginning of the creation of a unilateral support for the redistribution of land in the United States. We must be cognoscente of the reality that culture is created through the intimate relationship of cultivation that occur between person and earth :)
