The cultural arts are so important! Art and music develop so many much needed skills and are a great stress reliever, which of course promotes overall health. The movie, "Music of the Heart," has helped bring awareness to this, but I wish more was being done.
Alternativista, what a great project you are working on, and they sure are lucky to have your help. Have you heard of Urban Acres in Dallas, Texas? www.urbanacresmarket.com. They have recently created their own farmstead right in the heart of the city. I wonder if the farm you volunteer at might get some ideas or inspiration from what they are doing? I think it's so cool...such a smart, resourceful and much needed idea.
