It all started with a quote of the actor Robin WILLIAMS, recently shared on my Facebook page: “I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up alone, it’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people that make you feel all alone.“
A comment of John Richard PENDERGAST (London, UK) ignited an interesting discussion about the significance and lack of recognition for methods and techniques to help stop hunger and malnutrition :
“29-7-2013. Hi Willem, Can you please tell me (why) people have not taken my ideas forward to help stop people dying from HUNGER, even though I’m offering my 3Rs Plastic Container Gardening ideas to the world for FREE, so that one day it might become part of Governments WORLD AID programme right now and in the future.

What is the PROBLEM with people not using my ideas?
Is it because I’ve got a young black naked child on the intro-page of my website (www.recycling.moonfruit.com), scraping the earth for something to eat, with the words Making Globalisation Work for the POOR on it ?
Or is it because I’m offering a different way to grow something to gardeners who already know how to grow their own food?
Or is it just because it’s too much of a high price to help save lives, even though it’s for next to nothing, because it’s all made from waste.
I know lives are being lost when they could have been saved. What more can one man do without help from like-minded people, trying to save millions of lives if we can in our own ways ?“
Here is my short reply to him : Yes, John, That’s what happens to great ideas. Anyway, keep up the good spirit, be patient, for Rome and London haven’t be built in one day (or even two).
