Plants: Role Models

I don't think I'll ever stop being surprised that food comes out of the ground.  

Seriously. One day it's a seed, then a dinky little plant, and pretty soon you're eating a toasted tomato sandwich. Bjorn and I have been eating yummy food out of his epic garden slash orchard slash back yard, and it is crazy cool.

 

Plants take material from their environment and rearrange it in useful ways. Then, once it's rearranged, they offer it up to their community.

 

We get food, and they spread their genetic material.

 

Everybody wins.

 

Rearrange the universe. Make something novel, make something useful. Share with you community. Share it in a way that's life giving for everyone involved.

 

Make art.
