In addition to being National Food Day, October 24th is also the official United Nations Day and, as a counter to this events irrelevance to human interests along with the ongoing malpractices of groups like Monsanto, OH Sustainability Work Group, in solidarity with Occupy movements everywhere, is helping to host an International Seed Dispersal!

Information regarding crops most likely to do well in your region will be made available, here, beforehand allowing each Occupy or affinity group to decide their own specifics on dispersing: whether it be along major highways, country roads or within neighborhoods or at a local farm or garden.

This event also seeks to be part of the answer to the vision of "local food production, community gardens, & permaculture agriculture" as seen in the visioning session results of NATGAT!

This Earth belongs to us, and it's time we reclaim it!

How things went in Houston

Posted October 31st, 2012 by iseeddisperse • permalink
We cleared four beds, dispersed a variety of lettuce seeds, cleaned up trash and debris and halfway cleared a fully weeded out large bed exposing two climbing vine posts that will certainly be useful later, at Eco-Tone. Later, we built out the irrigation system and harvested long beans, kale, bell peppers, eggplant, and okra at Marcus Garvey. Key holder of the Silo was a no show expressing the need for family time after knowing of the event for months, so we hung out at Last Organic Outpost until 7 pm did some harvesting and farm touring until we realized that darkness had overtaken us and that it was time to call it a day. Thanks again, to everybody who helped make the day a hit!  We will be following up on our efforts over the next weeks and continuing to update our hub at Interoccupy with information relevant to this ongoing campaign!

PLANS FOR HOUSTON, TX SEED DISPERSAL

OH Sustainability work group has identified four areas that we will use to disperse seeds on the 24th. The Last Organic Outpost, Marcus Garvey Garden, Eco-tone and The Silo.

For the Fall season we’ve identified green vegetables and herbs as our most viable option for planting and yielding harvest. Access to seeds, seedlings and plants will be plentiful, thanks to friends and non-gmo seed collectors who’ve agreed to donate seeds for participants. Some tools will be available and we encourage everyone to bring gloves and footwear you don’t mind getting dirty. Lastly, in an effort to more actively engage people in the process of gardening there will only be some minor preparation of each location prior to Oct. 24.

TIMES/LOCATIONS:

8am- Eco-tone, 3616 St. Charles St.

11am- Marcus Garvey Garden, 5309 M.L.K. Blvd.
