Watershed organizing

I believe this is a necessary layer of food sovereignty organizing.

“As Lavey writes in a post on the Community Builders website, the map raises all sorts of questions about the way we have developed our population centers:

If states were organized around watershed and the idea that water should be used efficiently, then that conservation ethic could also have taken root in the way places were built. Recognizing that it is both fiscally unwise and squandering of agricultural/open space, towns may have grown up with a more compact, mixed use form because of their performance relative to those two benchmarks.”
