But your yard is even fresher and more local than Farmers' Markets

Awesome. More like this, please -- everywhere!


Rockin' Jay Inslee (D-WA), has proposed a bill to have USDA pick up 80% of the costs of setting up community gardens!
You know, like in Minto-Brown Island Park! What a great idea! Jay was briefly a Congressman from the dry side of Washington State, but got wiped out in the 1994 "Contract with America" revolution where Washingtonians also got rid of a sitting speaker of the house, Tom Foley in order to enjoy life under Newt. But Jay just went to the wet side and was back in Congress before long. He's got a foolish fascination with biofuels but his heart's definitely in the right place.

The Ecological, aesthetic, climate, and economic effects of everyone turning just a small portion of their yard into a vegetable or native plant garden would be unmeasurable.

I just started an Oregon Environmental blog and am trying to get it off the ground. Any pointers?

Hmmmmm, based on the paucity of comments and the small readership of LOVESalem, I think my pointer would be to ask for pointers from more successful blogs!
