Finished Editing!

We are done!

Mostly.

We are adding the title, and just need to render our movie and it will be done! (Did it in Final Cut Pro)

Yay!

P.S: Were did the weekly inspirations go? 🙂

Food Justice: Urban Gardening!! Shall We Update?

Hi, I thought I would do this cause I got some time to kill!

So, On Saturday, under the high heat and the blistering sun, we went outside! We lost a few gallons of sweat and went to 2 urban gardens! We interviewed several people – both organizers , and people who use the garden – and even volunteered a bit, planning on going there again in a week or 2.

Well, anyway, we suffered from the blistering heat, and yeah, that and that. We also had to search a bit for people to interview, as it’s being memorial day weekend meant that many people weren’t there.

The problem we encountered:
Memory. We should have brought an extra card.

So, yep!

Let the others of the group post!

Bio: Benjamin

Hey all!

I’m Benjamin Kasavan, and am in 9th grade. I love technology; I built my own (1200$) computer, and love tinkering with electronics, a lot of which I scavenge from garbage. I have made an audio amplifier, an astable oscillator (Think something like a synthesizer), each for under 7$. Otherwise I have built myself a benchtop powersupply (Gives different DC Voltages) and some speakers with an amplifier. Both those were from stuff I collected from the trash.

I  go to the LFNY. That’s the Lycée Francais de New York. It’s a private french school around 75th street, which costs $27K per year. Yep. It costs 27 thousand dollars a year.  Thankfully, I’m on a scholarship, mostly because I am a french citizen (I have dual (American and French) citizenship). My dad’s American, and my mom’s French and my grandparents live in France, near Switzerland (In the region of Franche-Comté to be exact)

My grandparents have a garden, in which the plant tomatoes, parsley, cherries, zuchinni, and lots of other stuff.

The quality, especially the taste, between those, and other vegetables that you can buy, at a supermarket here is so much higher from there: Home grown vegetables, versus internationally imported vegs.

I’ll have a picture up… soon
