This post made me cry

I'm upset at the injustice in the world. I'm rethinking my own actions as I walk down the street. I'm thinking about what I can do about it, here, because I can recognize that man in the surrounding community.

A hollow invitation to the table

It's written by a former college classmate whom I admire tremendously. Her blog started out documenting her first attempts at gardening and has just taken off. This post is about her experiences at Slow Food Nation in San Francisco. Read it...please. It really is food for thought. The topic is complex, but I have to agree that the situation she describes bothers me. A lot.

what a great post from Genie, I had just been looking at her flickr photos of the event. My sister planted a lot of those vegetables in the victory garden and she passes out free food with City Slicker Farms the rest of the year.

Thanks for the link to the inadvertent gardener. I often cringe when someone recommends yet another blog. (Simply because I spend way too much time reading blogs.) But this is one that deserves to be added to the list.
