I’m going to overthrow the state by growing fruits and vegetables! Not really, but it’s at least a step forward for myself. I am finally learning my farming skills this week. Lots of hard work and lots of hot sun. It will be a great boon to have tax free monsanto free food. It is my daydream to open ‘Agorist Farms’ as a means to sustain myself. ‘The Stateless Wonder’ who comments here from time to time was over this weekend while we got some tomatoes and peppers planted.
I am a city boy. I grew up in Cleveland and live in Kansas City. Working in the earth planting food is a brand new thing for me. It is one that I am enjoying. I have daydreams of becoming the great anarchist urban farmer, opening the land to a community and working together to create a self sustaining co-op where we can meet all our needs by working together and growing what we need to sustain ourselves year round. This year I am not making an attempt to go that far, I am just learning to grow. I hope to possibly share some with a local community.
I love to cook, so I have been learning how to cook with more raw materials, grinding wheat and making breads, pastas and all sorts of good stuff from scratch. This will help me migrate to a more self sustainable diet. I am not growing wheat yet, but as time goes on I hope to be able to achieve this along with what I have begun. For now we are buying bulk organic wheat, rice and beans. This cuts back on the cost drastically.
As I finish getting my agorist agriculture in order this spring I will most likely be on the site much less. Scott will be taking over as admin for a few weeks. I plan on getting some work done on other writing projects outside of the site and getting a great deal done on my little plot of land in the city.
