The first is over, but that doesn't mean you have to stop working for a better world! To keep the momentum going, always remember the 3 O's of successful activism: Organize, Organize, and Organize. Here are some things you can do now:

If you have a boss, you need a labor union. If you have a landlord, you need a tenant's union. And if you have debt, guess what, you need a debtor's union (debtcollective.org). has a whole page on how to unionize, as well as a list of groups to contact for help: wiki.sunbeam.city/doku.php?id=

Visit your closest meal. Ask how you can help and what other local groups need help. They'll be happy to have you!

I'm starting to think that Symbiosis might be the most important radical organization active right now. If you haven't already, please sign up - they'll help connect you with movements in your area and tell you how you can help. And they need a lot of help right now!

Raised beds in the garden. We are going to produce a bit more food Show more

I've had this idea in my had for a while for a soda bottle net pot.

I don't have anything to test this out on, but if any of y'all have a setup where this could work, try it out at let me know!

I changed the camera angle on my hydroponic setup. I also planted some more Bok Choy yesterday. You can see the one in the lower right has grown some, but isn't doing well. My nutrient mix might be too hot for young seedlings.

The mustard is going alright though!

For #solarpunkactionweek I'm attending Making Brooklyn Bloom at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden! 😄 bbg.org/visit/event/making_bro

There are all sorts of excellent workshops and lectures. This morning, I'm in a workshop on refugee food traditions, and learning how to cook callaloo and fish with Rose and Bintou 🌱🐟

I suppose this is my activity for #solarpunkactionweek

Every month I take my compost buckets to the farmers market to be swapped out. My load usually ranges from 10-15 gallons. I’m a vegan who batch cooks from scratch, freezes fruit, & makes non-dairy milk. The majority of what I compost is produce scraps, pulp from flax or oat milk, & food scraps

(Image: a photo of three 5 gallon buckets, 2 yellow & 1 green, sitting in a triangle. They are positioned in front of a stove & brown cabinets)

I finally ordered the stuff to charge my laptop from the solar! (car charger with high enough output, car charger outlets to plug it into) And a couple more power banks for phones. I still only have one 35Ah battery, so thatll only be on days we actually see the sun

I've been thinking about what I could do for (my mini Forest Garden really was last week) and realised that I'm just not physically up to doing anything (coz ME).

But I do have some knowledge about gardening and growing ornamentals and edibles as well as some knowledge of permaculture, so am always happy to share that - just ask. It's something I can offer whilst resting in bed :)

@actionweek

So it doesn't look like those gardening plans will happen before the end of the week, but! Yesterday I was tasked with an important bonus action for

I got into gardening talk with a customer at work, and when I mentioned my lime tree she said she'd always wanted one. So I offered to make her a clone of mine! Now I can share the abundance of my garden with someone else

I'm doing 2 because there's never a 100% success rate on these, and it's my first time. Instructions (with pictures) in the thread below, including how to make homemade rooting hormone!

latest shot from my garden plot:
prepared and mulched one more bed, finished the first layer of the second raised bed I'm doing at the end of my plot, and did the second layer on both raised beds.
(first layer was cardboard and broken wood directly on top of the grass, the second is very old hay that's not suitable for animal consumption anymore. Next one will be green stuff, all the weeds I'm pulling up and all the kitchen scraps I can get, I think)
Two more beds to go!

#SolarPunkActionweek

I haven’t thought much about #SolarCooking in the past months, but today I revisited the Idea of building my own #Ligthtoven .

With the #Upcycling-assembly kit it's not expensive (~ 30€) , and it would result in a real #SolarCooker:

I'm also thinking about offering this as a project for my local kids holiday activities (#Ferienspaß)
