Masoud Will Be Missed

This evening I attended the funeral of Masoud Awartani, owner of Zaytoon restaurant, peacemaker in Greensboro, friend to so many. I’ve never written a goodbye to a friend in this way before, and it is hard to express the sadness we feel. So I will share a poem from my favorite poet, Jelaluddin Rumi:

Today, like every day, we wake up empty
and frightened. Don’t open the door to the study
and begin reading. Take down a musical instrument.

Let the beauty we love be what we do.
There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.

Thank you for being part of our lives Masoud, and making it better by being in it.

Lets go to Terra Madre

Check out this 10 minute video that we created. Urban Harvest and the Greensboro Children’s Museum teamed up to apply for a scholarship for the Terra Madre conference in Italy this fall.

Urban Harvest’s Vision for Greensboro

This News & Record video was released on Friday as a preview to a piece for release on Sunday. The interview with Co-Founder Daniel Leiker discusses Urban Harvest’s involvement with the Dunleith Community Garden site, and how Dunleith is a piece of our vision to work with Greensboro to “provide access to local food for all it’s citizens.”

Watch the video here.

Then read the article “A growing revolution: Urban gardens are changing the landscape” about more urban farming and local food initiatives in Greensboro and around North Carolina.
