Hello Marni, What a great story, one that needs to be replicated all over the country! I wanted to let you know about a national campaign we are spearheading to help stimulate a national move towards growing more of our food closer to home. As you know, as the economic challenges continue to grow, more and more Americans are considering getting involved in local food production. As a way to help to accelerate this trend, we have started a very simple campaign called "One Million Gardens" (http://onemilliongardens.ning.com) who's goal is to identify, encourage, and document the creation of at least 1,000,000 food gardens throughout the U.S. in 2009. Please take a look at the site, add your garden to the list, and let others know about this campaign. It is also my hope that we can show the Obama administration the growing numbers of people involved in this work and help shift national policies to help encourage these activities. Thank you for your work and I hope you will encourage others to add their gardens to this growing list.
