TEDxDirigo - Roger Doiron - A Subversive Plot: How to Grow a Revolution in Your Own Backyard

The video of this TED talk is about 18 minutes in length. Give a listen with your morning coffee.

For those who aren't familiar with TED you MUST check out their About page. You can follow them on Twitter @TedTalks and on Facebook at The project is doing good things in the world.

A few of my notes from Roger's talk follow:

90% of vegetable varieties went extinct in the 20th century. (source?)
 31 minutes. The average amount of time the American family spends preparing, eating, and cleaning up after meals, per day. (per day? dreadful)
 Gardens grow important economic savings for families. (amen!)
