Idea: My vision for Mezzacello has always been to get people and communities to see our emerging food crisis. We must establish teams that will build stronger food oases communities. Together we can create a better system for evolving the community garden concept from an idea to a structurally necessary tool. I support using better ecological, educational and cultural integration with resources that can be crowdsourced, shared, leveraged and funded in new and more dynamic ways.
