Today there’s a Washington Post story about urban gardeners in New York City (not in D.C. because we still lag sadly behind). My favorite part is where a 29-year-old Brooklyn resident recounts seeing food prices go up, deciding to grow food for the first time, taking pictures and emailing them around to friends and getting this response: "You’re kidding! You did what?"
Then Craig at Ellis Hollow sent me this article in Florida’s Ledger newspaper. It’s about the local Extension Service giving their usual workshop in growing vegetables but instead of the usual turn-out of 20 to 30, seeing 120 people show up. Great news! But again it just makes us here in D.C. even sadder that our Extension Service does nothing but put up roadblocks to progress. Seriously.
