Re-Occupy Yer Lawns: #OccupyRewilding
Michael Pollan sez: “A lawn is nature under totalitarian rule.”
The single most irrigated crop in the United States is…(drum roll please) lawn. Yep, 40 million acres of lawn exist across the Land of Denial and Americans collectively spend about $40 billion on seed, sod, and chemicals each year.

March 23 MZ event:
Let’s welcome the American Spring at Jivamuktea Café on March 23
As the #Occupy movement continues to grow and evolve, how and where do animal rights and other dark green issues fit into the now infamous 99%?
Join New York City’s own Mickey Z. - subversive author of 11 books - for an urgent and inspirational call-to-arms, re: OWS, activism, speciesism, ecocide, veganism, holistic justice, the 2012 election, and so much more - followed by Q&A/discussion.
If you’ve never been to a Mickey Z. event, check your expectations at the door and prepare to be #Occupied.
