So I show up at one of our sites today and Gerry and Johnny are hanging out, tending the compost pile. They report that they just brought 10 new neighbors into the neighborhood compost program. Then I notice a little line of jars filled with water and tomatoes on the porch railing. 'We're separating the seeds." Johnny explained. "Oh, and guess what, Jorge said we could try to make wine from the grapes at Nuevo South."
I wondered, "How do you know how to do that?"
Gerry said, "We Googled it - YouTube." Of course.
How many young adults spend their days Googling seed separation and viniculture?
