Critical thinking for Human Community

@thegeneticsgal, this one is for you:

I have been dreaming up an idea since 2011, which I have been rehashing, renaming, and reorganizing into more viable alternatives.  This bit of the idea comes from around 2013 or so, but don’t forget, that even then I was trying to figure out what parts and pieces make up the common good.

The common good, or the general welfare, includes our Public Commons, like on-going legal & financial pro-bono education (aka Adulting Education).   Access to these public goods must become more fully inclusive for all of us.

the aim of Fully Inclusive Equality.

The Goals (allowing each person to contribute fully):

1. Each person, as a child, must learn to swim (or at least float).

      An acre looked like alot of land to me (a city girl), when a farmer showed me a one-acre plot.
      The only problem is that a house would probably have to be build on stilts above (or like a Hobbit house below??) the land, to take advantage of the entire acre.
      No?

    2. With square foot farming, mini-green houses and such – an acre is more than enough for four people. Depends on what you plant – a 1/4 acre garden that I helped with could feed more than 4 people, if they canned or froze veggies, as well – https://squarefootgardening.org

    3. Once started 100 gardens for one season – 100 Mexican-American families. tomatoes, tomatillos, chili, celantro, basil, lettuce – garden frame and mix for soil from seed to salads…

    4. Two of us with 2 volunteers. We did four other community gardens and a school garden that year as well. Was a good year.
