Yesterday, I sat down in the basement with Nathan Brannon in the yard. He won Portland’s Funniest Person contest a decade ago, subsequently debuting a comedy album to Kill Rock Stars. Today, he focuses on growing food and sharing his experience on social media.
The conversation moved quickly from humorous to serious, digging in the weeds of communities challenged with healthy food scarcity, concepts surrounding systemic poverty and state intervention with food benefits that enable poor people to continue buying bad food.
We agree that growing our own food and engaging with our own communities is the solution, while struggling with the problem of motivation and engagement.
