    This is great Taylor. Such a brilliant idea to memorialize your love one in this manner and help the community as well

    Great post. I didn’t realize that I grew up in a food desert until some college interns turned my high school front lawn into a garden. I was thrilled to see okra, callaloo, and tomatoes growing in my old Brooklyn neighborhood.

    This article reminds me of my grandmother’s abundant gardens. There was always enough to give away – and we ate healthy food. My grandmoms lived well into their nineties, and I credit their gardens for being the perfect reason they were so healthy. The idea of a community garden is catching on in all areas. I might even dig out my old canner pot!

    I live extremely close to a food desert area.A non-profit supermarket opened a few months ago and is doing well.
    I love the garden and farmers market area. I would love to see it here.

    SO love the idea of these urban gardens. In the DC and Northern VA area I’m seeing them spring up in various neighborhoods.

    This is fascinating because my daughter is actually working on a Jewish urban farm in Northern California this summer. So important.

    I love this idea and, like Cathy, I wish there were more as well. Each summer I grow a fairly large garden and donate the excess (which there is always excess zucchini!) to our local food bank. Now my wheels are spinning around the idea of a community garden in my town. Hmmmm….

    I always love hearing about a city doing an urban or community garden! I am a gardener too. Makes me happy!

    The Farmers’ Market, a built in revenue stream, is a brilliant addition to a well designed and well thought executed project! Project sustainability is always a worry and have a source of income that is not dependent on any other factors, is critical!
