Sustainable Food for the Globe

At a time when so many people are full of doubt and questions, it is refreshing to meet everyday people who have come across problems and solved them with rather creative solutions. In this book, stories of everyday people take us all over the world, and brings us all kinds of insight. Meeting kindred spirits along the way, who share their knowledge and passion, they motivates us to find and develop our own inner gems. You will read about Salma Kamal, and the importance of Kitchen Gardens. And there is Deborah Manning who shares her system of rescuing wasted food, by redistributing it and creating a tasty meals that provide food and humaine substinace to those in need. You will meet everyday people that are empowering themselves, by actively securing healthy food production to nourish not only themselves, but their families and the global community as well. We see how our future pioneers, the children, thrive as active participants within the community and thus paving the way for respect and honorable stewardship of the limited resources given to us by Mother Earth. I hope these stories will bring you happiness and joy and a little inspiration as well. You might even smile and take a few minutes to share your own stories your families and friends. I'll make sure to include as many stories of your stories and bits of wisdom on my blog.

Sustainable Food for the Globe

Chapter Two Eric Larson, Garden Columnist Ohio, USA When I first approached Eric to collaborate with me on this book, I thought he would be great as one of the experts found in the second part of the book. After reading how he answered my questions, I realized that his columns would be perfect in setting up an overview for some of the issues covered in this book: Sustainable Food for the Globe, Everyday People Producing Food in Abundance . NB: "Eric, how many years have you been gardening?" EL: "Gardening has, for as long as I can remember, been a part of my family. When my great-grandparents came to this continent, one of the things they looked for was a piece of property with enough size to have a large garden. Many of our grandparents probably did the same thing. Gardens also gave them a sense of freedom from having to go to the grocery store and paying for their vegetables. I remember my grandmother having a small greenhouse when I was a kid. One year my parents took us all down to Florida for a vacation. My folks brought back some of those small orange trees that vendors sell by the side of the road. Mother gave my grandmother the small trees, and years later, I remember seeing the orange tree growing in her greenhouse in full bloom and thriving. Grandma would always have the most beautiful yard. Even with a small greenhouse, she would grow her own geraniums, annuals like marigolds, and petunias that would change with something else from time to time. Home-grown vegetables that would be started from seed are also something that I remember. Over the years, grandma would process the vegetables from her garden and the smells were amazing, ever imprinted on my mind. One of my favorite memories about my grandma's greenhouse was her giant Boston fern, Humphrey, which I remember moving more than once. My wonderful grandma would talk to and sing around Humphrey, but not in front of very many people. Humphrey was a monster and grew to cover a four foot tall plant stand and at least two more feet on the floor curled at the base. Did my grandma know something that my professors didn't tell me? My parents have maintained this heritage of love for plants. They have owned two greenhouses and I believe that their gardens are beautiful. Between my folks, my brother, his ex-wife and myself we had a plant rental business that helped support three families for more than five years. Their passion for flowers has infected many people outside the family, and has been the basis for the Cascade Garden idea my dad came up with 8 years ago. Dad's taste for unusual plants brought Northern Passion flower and Franklin tree into his yard. Over the years I have enjoyed many plants from their gardens. As a matter of fact, my wife enjoyed her daily bouquet of flowers delivered to her door from my parent's garden, while we were dating. Before becoming a landscape designer with Schrauf Landscaping in North Ridgeville many years ago, I worked in a greenhouse, a nursery, and a park. When I was in school, I mowed lawns for a lot of people while I lived in Jacksonville, Florida. For three different seasons, I kept a 100 x 100 vegetable garden, which kept me hopping, growing unusual and difficult plants. I built my own gazebo, and did many unique things with my designs in the garden, and I oversaw all of the implementation. I find gardening fun, relaxing, and tasty. Fighting hard to earn the Magna Cum Laude honor, I received a high position at graduation in my class at OSU-ATI. I won three scholarships, was president of the international honor society, and nominated for student of the year. But education is not always having the correct answer the instant you are asked, but it knows where you might find the answer. I have designed gardens from Lexington, to Lake Erie, and Rave
