Commitment #18

“I will commit random acts of agriculture.”

Weeks ago my mom threw some kabocha pumpkin seeds out into her yard, hoping a few would sprout and mature into a productive patch. Well, it seems every last seed gave way to a seedling. Needing only a few to propagate for herself and not wanting to kill off the other perfectly good plants, she decided we should pot them up and give them away.

It took just over an hour to harvest the baby plants, round up the materials, pot the plants and water them so they’d be ready for their new homes. Bonus, I was able to do good on my first commitment of the year by reusing one Heineken beer box and nine plastic yogurt containers. Woohoo!

Did you know Martin Luther King, Jr. Day has become a national day of service? Though this isn’t your typical MLK Day service project, we feel enabling people to feed themselves is a service in itself. Therefore, this little project ā€” and any other random acts of agriculture we commit from here on out ā€” will be in honor of MLK.
