Peter Hoh sent me a story (no longer online) that started with the line: "If lawns had legs they would be running scared." Okay, I'll bite.
And ya gotta love this – companies in Minnesota replacing some of their lawn with "giving gardens," with produce donated to the needy. Blue Cross has giving gardens and touts the program to other corporations.
And one local construction company not only has a "giving garden" but they blog about it. (Lots of great photos like this one.) And I notice they've gotten some nice press coverage about the garden. You can't just take out an ad for that kind of good publicity. Ya gotta earn it, baby.
