Shifting more green, community gardens

Here on Bowen there is a small permaculture movement brewing. Hat tip to Peter Rawsthorne for David Holmgren's excellent post on Permaculture Principles.

Just one month before this speech, Laura and George Bush were in the US white house:

"I'm a big believer in community gardens, both because of their beauty and for their access to providing fresh fruits and vegetables to so many communities across this nation and the world." - First Lady, Michelle Obama, Ferbruary 19th 2009 Full transcript of remarks by first lady Michelle Obama to u.s. department of agriculture employees

Shift happens etc.

[UPDATE via James Glave: So, Now the Vancouver Mayor is converting the lawn of city hall into a community garden]
