Environmental Justice Detroit

I keep missing Detroit, so I’m back.

In the empty lot – a place
not natural, but wild – among
the trash of human absence,
the slough and shamble
of the city’s seasons, a few
old locusts bloom.
(Wendell Berry, “The Wild”)

Masanobu Fukuoka, the founder of organic rice farming in Japan, says in The One Straw Revolution:

Artists and poets must also help to decide whether or not it is permissible to use chemicals in farming….

No fertilizers, no watering, no weeding. . . just throw the seeds in clay bowls. Then do nothing. Just leave everything to nature


Please bring a pencil, something to write with, and a passion for the great outdoors. (No experience necessary).

Time/Day: Saturday March 21 2015 10:10 am
