Work, we can’t really avoid it. Human civilization has been built on work. The laboring of many billions of people throughout history has created the cities, farms, industries, armies and infrastructure which have marked our time on the planet. Even before human civilization emerged, the role of labor and the development of different kinds of tools have been central to our evolution from the more primitive primates. Work, therefore, becomes a relevant factor in studying the culture of any particular place or group of people.
Most of my childhood my back yard had really green grass. I always remember helping my dad spred Scott grass seed in May to help the grass grow. In 2007 my dad built a 27X36 garage. That look up most of my back yard. After the construction of the garage the lawn never looked so green because of all the damage the equipment has did to the grass.
back then, though agriculture was a striving practice, many people were not original in the way they grew crops, and also didn't give much attention to the conditions of the crops, it's soil or it's plants. Carver introduced the practice of crop rotation, a process
In return, he also helped them build a place to rest their heads. Before we came here my pa bought lots of seeds to plant so that when we got out here we could live off the land. I help my ma with the chores. While pa is outside working the land, or hunting for animals to put food on the table. When Pa does bring in an animal I help ma prepare it, she says I need to learn how to do this for when I get a husband of my own.
Seigneuries-were large plot of lands along the St.Lawrence River. Separated by fences, thats was divided into many long narrow fields which were given to the Habitants to live and farm. This was part of the Seigneurial system.on their seigneury they had a lumber mill, a grain mill, and a church on it. They also had a fair size amount of land for any social events. As the land was passed through generation the the strips became smaller.
I do feed the dogs and help with the mowing. Although I get to ride the mower and papaw had to push. My everyday life is more hectic than papaw’s life was. I have a ball game or practice every night of the week and I have a lot more homework. I use an IPad and computer and they didn’t have computers or IPad’s when papaw was twelve.
One day, if we disappear, the environment will be just fine. The earth will continue to rotate without us. But little actions like volunteering at your local garden could not only help plants but humanity as a whole. And I would have never learned all of this information if I never volunteered for Compost for Brooklyn. To others, Compost for Brooklyn may be an insignificant little garden, but to me, it 's a place of learning an appreciation for the environment and
A third solution is teaching people how to grow food in their specific environment. If hungry people could just grow their food it would be much easier. Here are some pros to this solution, It would reduce the amount of hunger in this world, it would teach other people how to care for themselves, and it would provide jobs for people who can teach others. Sadly, there are also some cons to this solution. A few of them are that farming takes up land, flying people to other parts of the world to teach them is expensive, we would have to install irrigation systems, and people may fight over farmland.
On the top right of the yard there is a huge garden that is a half chicken coop, the coop wasn’t there when I was a kid, instead there was flowers. To the left of that is just open grass where we usually set up our tents when we have big family events (mostly just our family reunion). To the bottom right is where they have their camp chairs, the picnic tables, canopy porch swing, and trampoline. On the right side of the garage are four gorgeous lilac bushes, so the backyard usually smells like lilac. On the front porch of their house are two rocking chairs and some pots of flowers.
The land was rocky, water was scarce, no major rivers, and it rained mostly in the winter but they found a solution. Some of them “earth steps” which are big flat steps built into the sides of mountains and hills, so get more space for farming. Others grew crops that needed little land such as grapes and olives. They used the olive oil for fuel (lamps), cooking, and even soap. They also couldn’t raise another important part of food, cows.
Samuel went on to complete many things in his life such as building the May house in 1817, which was definitely not built to be a private house but, more of a house for the community. There were many crops outside the house along with animal pens. During the financial panic Samuel sold land along with his slaves to maintain strength financially. From 1809 to 1833 Samuel’s wife Catherine “bore him six sons and eight daughters” according to the story. Samuels’s sons mainly helped him with the work needed outside such as the farm and their daughters helped Catherine with the chores inside.
Then they would move to were their game went. When they were doing all that the learned how to plant crops corn beans, and squash. They lived near waterways then they became farmers they stared with other people neighboring groups. Leaders lived in the center of the village early Native Americans some follow their game and some just started were they were the all had different languages clothing customs their homes. Nomadic Indians moved from places to places nomadic family’s would build a house that would move very easily that could withstand any type of weather.
We’ve never encountered any other tribes but we know they are out there. I took foot to my daily job on the farm. We pick corn and and other fruits or vegetables that our sprouting. It was a mile from our village and on the particular day the sun was shining and the heat beamed on us like lying your face next to a hot fire. We began our job and hours later we took our break.
To earn a living, planters grew some type of cash crop that could be sold for money or credit in order to buy needed tools, livestock, and household goods which could not be produced on the farm. During winter and spring, women did spinning and sewing. In the late summer and fall, women dried and stored fruits and vegetables for winter meals. Planter’s wives often grew herbs such as spearmint, peppermint, lavender, rosemary, and parsley. Such plants were used to season food and make home remedies.
