Ann Arbor Area Community News
Ypsilanti blogger Mark Maynard and local community gardening non-profit Growing Hope are in the brainstorming stages of launching a new Victory Garden project in the area. From Mark’s post on the topic:
I started wondering whether or not it might be feasible to kick off a national campaign around the new Victory Garden, focusing on, instead of war, the fuel consumed in shipping produce from Honduras and hauling it from Mexico, and what it costs us, environmentally speaking. “Victory Gardens against Global Warming,” has a nice ring to it, I think. (I suspect there are a lot of people out there, like me, who are looking for real, tangible ways to join in the fight against global warming, and it would be great to give them something to do.)
The “product” of this initiative is envisioned as a clearinghouse for information and supplies in support of Michigan gardens for world change, but the final form and content are yet to be determined. The coordinators have called a planning meeting for this Thursday, May 3, 7pm at the Corner Brewery (720 Norris St., just north of Depot Town).
