15. Public produce: the new urban agriculture

Public produce - Darrin NordahlPicked this up from the ‘new books’ shelf on a whim, in solidarity with my friends who are farming in Detroit. Nordahl argues for municipal planning and support of food-bearing plants in public spaces, freely harvestable by all citizens. Food security and food literacy are two of his rationales, but he’s generally advocating for a change of mindset in favor of justice for inner city residents who do not have access to nutritious, unprocessed food choices. It’s an inspiring, erudite, quick read on the subject — makes me want to plant an apple tree on the berm in front of my house.
