How To Change Your Community With One Word


That's the one word that Incredible Edible uses to changes small towns from down-and-out to up-and-coming. This organization is based in the UK, but their website offers practical advice and tips for the vegging of your community that apply anywhere (local hardiness zones notwithstanding). Seattle has jumped on this bandwagon to create the nation's first "public food forest," and many other communities all across the country, urban and rural, are creating community garden plots and planting their front yards with green peppers instead of green grass.

Food builds community, and if it can educate while it nourishes, why not?
