This article could easily be about gardening in any city in the U.S. (the site of all trends worth tracking, right?) It's got impact on kids, organic, avoiding pesticides – the whole shebang. Something we don't see here is growing edibles hydroponically, making me wonder if that's where we're headed.
This bit shows the impact of the good ole Internet:
accidentally learned from Internet that everyone can grow sprout
vegetable at their homes with simple tools and I decided to grow
vegetables myself. The health of my child is the most important thing
for me now.
And this one shatters our usual assumptions about who gardens. Would you believe male office workers?
director of a company specializing in providing sprout vegetable seeds
revealed that urban gardening is a growing trend. He told a Tuoi Tre
reporter that his main clients are educated and many are office
workers, accounting for 80 percent of total clients. Most of them are
male, aged above 30.
