Americans dig deeper

Whilst politicians in Washington debate the future of the American deficit, it appears that across the country, citizens are discovering inventive ways to support themselves by growing more and more of their own food.

Urban Farming is the new American craze being driven by people’s craving for a connection to their food source and for more affordable organic fare. Eli Zigas, the San Francisco Urban Agriculture Alliance co-coordinator commented that it “is forcing cities to think about how to bring back activities that we pushed out of cities a long time ago.”

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and is keen to "manage" the effects of the weather on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and I hope that it will continue to grow, allowing global gardeners to communicate about the effects of climate change on our plants and the future of our gardens.
