Food not lawns: urban gardens in Eugene, Oregon yards — 3 Comments

  1. And very much the message too from Bill Mollison, for instance in “Introduction to Permaculture”, a charming book of what needs to be done ( 1991, rev. 1997 ), which had on the cover “before and after” drawings of one of the “little boxes” which Pete Seeger sang about in the early 1960s. There have been some moves even amongst the most blinkered urban dwellers, with the rise of the patio crops in tubs, but more power to anyone who can help to bring about this long overdue gardening revolution !

  2. Hi everyone.
    Incredible Edible began in Todmorden several years ago when citizens came together and started planting food all around their village. It has now spread to include their schools with a cirriculum at the high school and much more.
