Hands down, one of the BEST explanations of the importance of the current urban gardening movement. Roger Doiron is on point, using humor alongside inescapable facts to urge us to get out there and grow something. He is the founder and director of Kitchen Gardeners International (www.KGI.org), a Maine-based nonprofit network of over 30,000 individuals from 100 countries who are taking a hands-on approach to relocalizing the food supply. In 2007, he was chosen as a Food and Community Fellow.
“Increasing access to foods that are healthy for us and the planet is the biggest challenge we face. Kitchen gardens will be a key part of the solution and represent a cost-effective investment. Everyone has a rold to play in planting and promoting them. Grow your subversive plot today.”
Please enjoy this eighteen minute video. If you are already an avid gardener, you will come away encouraged to press on and do more! If you are still on the fence, be prepared for a bit of a nudge. Either way, it will be eighteen minutes well-spent.
