"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Kind Words

The project:
Offer congratulations for a job well done on a garden that's seen big changes in recent months.


Why bother?
We walk our neighborhood regularly, so we notice changes. At one home, the changes have been glaringly obvious. We've watched the removal of old weeds, rocks, rotted borders, the digging of trenches, the tending to seed and the evolving flower beds. Today, we actually saw a HUMAN on the property. As we passed, it was easy to mention that the place was looking good.

Worth it?
Yes. The owner, who is clearly doing the work himself, was pleased that someone took notice.
