Dear Doris and Terry,
I understand that PSU has got rid of the Urban Gardening Program and
that the Horticultural Society has reduced its programming to Garden
Tender Workshops and such like.
It seems to me that this should be an excellent time to revitalize
community gardening programs, emphasizing the health benefits of food
gardening, e.g. exercise, healthy, relatively low cost, meals,
encouraging children to eat more fruits and vegetables since they
themselves have grown or helped to grow them.
Older people who have the time and energy could also derive
substantial health and economic benefits from growing their own food
with other like-minded people and/or with kids.
I should think that with the national emphasis on obesity, this would
be a good time to find funding for food gardening projects and
Just a thought,
