Weekend Reading


La Vida Locavore has a photo tour of a school garden and it's great composting program.

I recently passed a Wendy's with a big sign out for their new natural cut french fries with sea salt - clearly a claim that they had a healthy(ER?) french fry. HHmm...I thought. Well, Fooducate has the real story. (Think anti-foaming chemicals?)

 Nutrition for the Future is running lots of gardening tips - particularly on gardening with kids and starting out small.

Urban Roots  
Thursday, April 28, 7:30pm at the Cinema Arts Centre 
A small group of dedicated citizens, allied with environmental and academic groups, have started an urban environmental movement with the potential to transform not just a city after its collapse, but also a country after the end of its industrial age. Urban Roots is the story of a group of dedicated Detroiters working tirelessly to fulfill their vision for locally-grown, sustainably farmed food in a city where people -- as in much of the county -- have found themselves cut off from real food and limited to the lifeless offerings of fast food chains, mini-marts, and grocery stores stocked with processed food from thousands of miles away. The people of Detroit have taken on the enormous task of changing this for themselves, and to under-stand their story is to understand how we can change it for us all.
