The first one "Cultivating Our Cities", p19-21, discusses both historical=
farming in cities, in a variety of cultures (ex. Mexico, Paris), and
current projects to do the same. Good detail, notions. Good focus on
organic. Reference/contact information.
The other article "Strong Roots", p.48-51+78, is a first-person experienc=
in creating an urban garden in a tough city neighborhood, from vision/hop=
to reality to positive outcome, not only in the garden but with the human=
kids, community... Mechanics of getting people together, funding, etc.
Realistic, yet positive. "Gardening drew us all closer to the earth and
nourished our neighborhood."
If you're interested, I think this is the current issue at the newstands.=
I don't know if they have the articles (sans pics) at their web site
(http://www.sierraclub.org). Or you can contact them at 85 Second St. San=
Francisco CA 94105.
