Why Bother with Urban Gardening?
My favorite snippet:
"But the act I want to talk about is growing some — even just a little — of your own food. Rip out your lawn, if you have one, and if you don’t — if you live in a high-rise, or have a yard shrouded in shade — look into getting a plot in a community garden. Measured against the Problem We Face, planting a garden sounds pretty benign, I know, but in fact it’s one of the most powerful things an individual can do — to reduce your carbon footprint, sure, but more important, to reduce your sense of dependence and dividedness: to change the cheap-energy mind."
REMINDER: The next FSP meeting will be 8pm this WEDNESDAY in the Piano Lounge, then it will be back to our regular date/time. Garden update soon to come.
