Growing Food / Changing Lives


This is a great story about a skid row half way house for homeless people who have started some pretty serious gardening.

It is such a great story, about people given some help and encouragement actively changing their lives in meaningful ways. Lauren and I have done our first gardening this year, and even though it has been less than a smashing success, the feeling of going out side to get some basil, or mint that you have grown yourself is pretty darn fulfilling.

Maybe next year we won't get blossom end rot on _all_ of our tomatos.
