Letter to Teachers Planning Visit

I would very much appreciate some on-line brainstorming with you, some of your fellow faculty, administrators, interested parents, and students… eye on the prize of accelerating the diffusion of aquaponics and other 21st century experiments at the intersection of the information and the bio technology “revolutions.”

And even…”earn while you learn experiments!”

We know much work is to be done before a single bottom line sustainable
urban farm emerges from our work. We have already proven the value of
multiple bottom lines, with the social and ecological justice foundation
of Sweet Water Organics(SWO), “The Farm,” having not only attracted close
to $1 million in volunteer “pro bono” high end labor, but also having sparked the
emergence of the Sweet Water Foundation(SWF), “The Academy,” which
has become the equal of the farm in sustainability and value
creating possibility.

We have absolutely no doubt that the presence of even a small digitally
enhanced aquaponics experiment costing less than $200 will have a major
impact in classrooms…everywhere, at every grade level.

The digital enhancement involves a badge based life long self directing open source learning/credentialing platform developed with the help of a $175,000 global competition awarded the Sweet Water AQUAPONS.

We hope to spark the incorporation of digital training and/or aquaponics miniatures costing less than $200 in 5% of our schools in 5 years, 20% by 2020. Here’s an essay I wrote with a “partner” Dr. N. Correll, with NASA connections and very, very inspired by possibilities of aquaponics as a transformative pedagogical resource:

Eager to meet and share ideas, in hopes of becoming “partners” to make a mark,
perhaps participating in a “global community of bio-technology experimentation”
worthy of a Nobel Prize!

Grateful,

I offer an hour or more intense conversation and urban ag/aquaponics story and digital info/introductions at my Alterra “office “ a few blocks from Sweet Water, followed by tours of an hour or so at the Sweet Water Robinson or off site aquaponics demos at Bradley Tech, Fernwood Montesori, the Washington Park Urban Ecology Center, La Casa Charter School, or organic urban gardens on Eastside, Riverwest, Harambe, Walnut Hill, or Madison Chicago eco tourism and urban agriculture or peri urban permaculture innovation centers. Eager to work with you and yours to accelerate the transition from bureaucratic industrial cities to participatory ecological cities. What say? Why not?

If you would like to grace some of yours with a choice from our menu of tours we have a “partner “ with a tour bus for 11.

Eco tourism can take place in one’s backyard
if we dig in the ground and look around, or if
we stand outside and look at the trees and sky,
listen to the wind and the birds.

Chicago’s Bronzeville Alliance

Dear Godsil,

We are a group of folk affiliated in some way with the Bronzeville Alliance’s Green Team and its initiatives. The Bronzeville Alliance is a coalition of community based institutions that believe more can be achieved working together than separately. Bronzeville is a neighborhood located in the Douglas and Grand Boulevard community areas on the South Side of Chicago.

Our “Milwaukee Green & Heritage Tour” is designed for us to learn more about Milwaukee’s burgeoning green economy and its cultural similarities to some Chicago’s cultural landscape. Where possible, it is our hope that participants are able to create linkages that connect to projects in their own communities. In addition to Sweet Water, we will also be visiting Growing Power, Walnut Way, and the Wisconsin Black Historical Society & Museum. And will be enjoying meal at Roots and Beans & Barley Cafe.

We are really looking forward to this!
