Dolly Rocker is a vintage clothier and upcycler out of Detroit. While a lot of new press is going to the urban gardeners -good news, indeed -it should also pay attention to the material recyclers and innovators of the urbanscape. The street up movement is not just about the food. That is important but "we are more than mouths to feed." (Arcade Fire

We need to change the old industrial growth model simply because infinite growth on a finite planet is not possible. The early economists and theorists started a system that can't self correct because the policies and path are self informing.

Jump off the train and practice being mindful, questioning, curious, caring, compassionate, in the moment, creative... be human.
