“The society which has abolished every kind of adventure makes its own abolition the only possible adventure.” Paris, May 1968

Meanwhile over on the other side of town.....

 The media continue to big up the advantages of  "growing your own" but aspiring growers must face up to the huge waiting list for allotments and the fact that not all off us are lucky enough to have gardens. This situation is giving rise to all kinds of initiatives from growing spuds in towers of old car tyres to the radical expropriation of unused land. I'm in favour of all of it, let a thousand cabbages grow. Last weekend I headed over to Hackney to check out one such project and you can do the same without moving from this keyboard by clicking here. It's not the eruption of the marvellous but projects like this can bring people together and lead on to who knows what.

When I was a Head Teacher we used to grow our own vegetables. They were called Governors.
