"Dan Lyles has developed a framework he calls “critical growing”—a term that covers activities such as urban agriculture, seed saver programs, biodiversity projects, and other radical alternatives to corporate capitalism’s “green revolution.” Lyles points out that organic gardening techniques like composting are allowing “soil value” to stay in the local circulation of nature’s generative circuits; combine that with food justice programs that help to keep exchanges of labor in local circulation, and you have cut out the middle man: value is returned to the value-makers directly."
