Community Garden - Izunome Farm, Hollywood Fl

Supporting the good things and rethinking our role in the earth
I always knew about the meat industry and watched movies, etc, but two movies clicked something in me a few days ago and both are available for free on Youtube: “A carne é Fraca” and “Earthlings” (ou Terráqueos, em português) - both are posted below.
The first one is very educational about the whole industry and the ethics of eating or not animal products. The second one is really really harsh and I couldn’t keep watching something that in the end we (meat and animal products consumers) all support.
As a coincidence with Earth Day, I’ve been rethinking about eating meat and being more proactive about the good initiatives.
I recently went on a Saturday morning to help in a community garden and it was such a nice experience that I’m trying to create more time in my life to participate more. This one (photo) is called Izunome Nature Farming Garden in the Highland Gardens neighborhood on Adams Street, close to 24th Ave, around Hollywood.
May we all rethink and give the firsts of many steps!
