Oregon State University Extension Service is reconnecting people with their food and landscapes. In Portland, it provides technical support to dozens of community gardens. It also operates the Learning Gardens Laboratory, where it runs a program that teaches students where their food comes from and how to eat healthily.
"I am in the Aleph, the point at which everything is in the same place at the same time. I'm at a window, looking out at the world and its secret places, poetry lost in time and words left hanging in space. Those eyes are telling me about things that we do not even know exist but which are there, ready to be discovered and known only by souls, not by bodies. Sentences that are perfectly understood, even when left unspoken." ~Paul Coelho, Aleph
