As the food supply chain experiences some breakage and as we're learning the fragility of some of these systems, some folks are looking at urban agriculture as a partial solution.

Doing something, even if you start small, to provide fresh food for your family is not only good for your physical and mental health, it's yummy, too.  Even if you don't have a Twinkie bush.

Tom Kasper is excited about new backyard gardeners, looking forward to being able to donate fresh produce to soup kitchens and food shelves again,eventually ... and shaking his head over people who didn't prune the storm damage off their trees in a timely fashion.
