Stop by Future House Farm to see Meg’s account of attending a talk by Michael Pollan, who was promoting his new
book In Defense of Food. Meg gives a nice summary of the talk and gets worked up in the process (wouldn’t we all?) but what’s most relevant to our continuing discussion of the Future of Gardening is the audience.
Not only were people lined up 2 hours early to get seats, but Meg estimates that at least 75 percent of the attendees (700, full house) were 35 years old and younger, most of them "urban hippies".
There’s hope yet.
