Roger Doinon and his Kitchen Gardeners International are doing some amazing things and why haven’t I heard about it before? I just learned about his work via the garden writers listserv, almost hidden among all the preconference chatter. His video "Beauty Food" BLEW ME AWAY. And folks, I’m no pushover for YouTube offerings and I’m not even a foodie! Well, that may finally change coz Roger’s very persuasive.
Kitchen Gardeners were recently featured on Maine TV. Roger tells us "the reporter got one of the stats
wrong: the 1% home-grown figure she mentions refers to the situation in
the US, not the world, fortunately."
To watch, go to the Kitchen Gardeners site. Shown first is the Maine TV report and just below it, click the carrot to see "Beauty Food." (Readers, I’ll learn how to embed videos directly from YouTube as soon as Amy tells me how.)
And here’s another view-worthy item Roger offers: "Eat Real Food," a "one-minute animated short co-produced by an
award-winning youth animator and myself that follows 8-year-old Polly
as she navigates her way past junk food temptations on her way to
something truly satisfying." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mMd53OOaah4
Lastly, did you know that tomorrow is Kitchen Garden Day?
