This was featured in today's Independent on Sunday and is also online here.
A whole town has got an initiative going for the past two years whereby vegetables are planted in waste ground, communal gardens etc. for anybody to take home. The schoolkids "adopted" an adjoining patch of waste ground and grow the veggies for the school canteen.
It seems a fantastic idea and I wish it could take off. I guess it reconnects people with growing and nurturing and must provide a vast sense of satisfaction for all who take part. If you consider the amount of green areas, roadside verges etc. in your own locality,which could be partially given over to this idea, then the potential is endless.
