The victory gardens of the 40's could change this in one season!!!! What has happened to prisons growing their own food? schools ,neighborhoods can do the same.
There are clusters of projects nationwide but ,here in the midwest it is almost a total failure! I gave up locally ,after seeing such low participation. I have nothing & still managed to give a lot of time, equipment,seeds plants & for the most part was taken advantage of by people wanting something FOR FREE!!!!.
I grew 4-5 hundred 1bs. of food last summer with 30$ out put & the least labor I have ever put into a garden. Hate to think what could have happened if I would have tried. Rick
