Urban Roots and From Seed to Plate- Edible Inspiration in time for Spring

This is going to be a a quick friday morning post because I am inspired and I want to share that inspiration.  Here in the Southeast, spring is definitely in the air. My hands are itching to begin their first real attempt at growing food. If we really want to know where our food is coming from, control how it is grown and get it at its peak, then it is best to just grow it yourself.

There is a increasing trend of people in urban areas finding ways to grow large amounts of food in small spaces. Check out how Detroit is educating a community, inspiring kids and working toward sustainability.
