Urban Farming

This morning my aunt sent out a family email with a link to a website that supports living liberally. I scanned through the site and found this lovely video on urban farming in the Bronx and thought I'd share it with you:

How do you feel about urban farming? I think it's a great way to get kids (and anyone else) involved in their community, provide some nature in a city environment, and also provide some responsibility and pride in your actions. Plus you're helping to provide for yourself! I also think urban beekeeping falls under the same categories, but perhaps with a bit more responsibility involved, since you are dealing with animals that are potentially dangerous.

Original site where video was found.
Also, read about urban beekeeping, since I sort of randomly brought that up.

Hey, I got you a book called 'square-foot gardening' or something like that. I thought I remembered you talking about it before. Would you like it? It sort of reminds me of this urban farming, because you can grow stuff no matter where you live. When you were in San Francisco, did you ever go see Aunt Carol's community garden?

I think it's a good idea, too. I think people should do it everywhere, though. um, and I am sleepy. and I want it to be spring so we can plant our garden.

Mom I totally want that book. And Megan, I'm sort of excited for your garden too :)
Our ward is doing a garden this spring/summer and the committee I'm on is in charge of it, so I'm excited to be able to do a little gardening again in the near future. Yay plants!
