Naturally I looked for gardeners who'd made the cut, and found a couple. Here are excerpts from Katie on Community Gardening.
Now, gardening is cool again because everyone wants local and organic. Just take this garden, we have 80 plots and 50 people on a waiting list to join. Two years ago, we had three people on the waiting list.
About her community garden:
Some mornings, I just come up here to water and weed before work and I will just end up sitting here and hanging out for a while. This place is so beautiful and peaceful.
The blurb at the end of the post mentions that Katie (Rehwaldt) manages Rooting DC, but I'll add that it's an awesome event. Free workshops on growing, cooking, bee-keeping – let's say urban homesteading. (And don't we all love using that ridiculously copyrighted term? I know I do.)
And in Rebbie on Making Farmers Markets Accessible we find out how complicated it can be for food stamps to be used at farmers markets.
On my nongardening blog I feature a couple of Boomers who can't resist African dancing, and relate my own failed attempt at it.
