There is hope - scandalous

I discovered this posting at earthabbey.com (a cool online community that deserves some of your cyber energy)...

"This is a story to put a smile on the face of anyone convinced that growing and eating our own organic produce should, perhaps, take precedence, even, over the front lawn of the Whitehouse. Michelle Obama isn’t thinking about this. She’s not weighing the pros and cons of a petition urging her to do this. She’s not allowing some local grower to plant some potatoes in a corner. She’s doing it herself with the help of some local school children."

I love it - this is the new kind of politics that could change the course of history. I'm cracking a smile and sensing some hope. I'm thinking, where could I/we plant a communal garden?

  1. I'm liking this a lot :) I started to get involved in a community garden over summer. There's a lot of good that comes out of it - both in terms of the food and the way people just get to meet each other. A little patch of community!

  2. Hey Bron
    Good to hear from you. How's things? Good to hear you've got green fingers. A movie you and Ezra might enjoy is "Into the Wild". Have a watch and let me know what you think.
