(Vision) A Neighborhood Start-up’s “First Bite”

  • Prepare (as in: prepare the soil for a garden)
  • Plant (as in: “they thought they had buried us; they didn’t know that we are seeds”)
  • Practice (fine-tune the operational community of practice)
  • Prosper (expand local wealth, health, and safety)
  • Pollinate (locally-sourced leadership takes what they’ve learned and shares it with adjacent communities)
  • Cuts out the middleman of “extractive industries“
  • Introduces regenerative and anti-fragile economic strategies (a stimulus from the bottom-up)
  • Makes visible various forms of non-monetary capital, such as the trust capital that exist within existing “cornerstones of community“
