Sustainable Gardening

seeds of victory

Mark Bitman’s opinion in today’s New York Times tells the sad story of families being prosecuted for turning their front lawns into gardens. We have had a similar problem hanging clothes to dry on our visible roof deck.

What dark ages are these objectors coming from???? Don’ they know about Victory Gardens of WWI and WWII or Michele Obama’s gardening efforts or Kitchen Gardeners International?

Part of our commitment to connect with, participate in and contribute to sustainable food systems is to incorporate creative means of growing food in our yards, on our rooftops, and on our patios.

Need some encouragement? Check out Steve’s and General Sisters’ gardens, and then go to Kitchen Gardening 101 and learn how to begin your own personal victory through gardening.
