Visualizing The Food System We Want

Sunrise over the greenhouse

What do pollution (of air, water and soil), heart disease, diabetes, a mass exodus of young people from rural areas, unemployment, obesity, soil erosion, cancer and loss of biodiversity have in common?

They are all symptoms of a defective food system.

Kolapore Gardens is not going to save the world.  It is not revolutionary.  But it is a step in the right direction.  A step towards building local, resilient communities that are reducing their dependency on fossil fuels.  In addition to that, FRESH FOOD TASTES BETTER!!!

Thyme overwintering

Last year I started a number of perennial herbs, including thyme, oregano, lovage, sorrell, russian tarragon, chives, garlic chives, and lemon balm.  There are a few others as well (sage, winter savory, french tarragon, perrenial fennel, lavender) but they aren’t as plentiful, so I’ll start some more of them this spring.

Other herbs to expect next summer include basil, cilantro, dill, parsley, sweet marjoram and summer savory.  Mmmm!
