Here is a sure sign that vegetable gardening and conservation are solidly mainstream: The Economist is running multiple articles about these very topics! I would like to share them both with you. The first is about how community gardens are huge in England right now, which goes to show that the veggie craze isn't just happening here in America. I guess that's globalization for you; recession and tainted food scares have spread around the whole world, and so has a positive, productive response to those situations. The second is a little closer to home. It's a story about a "rediscovered" prairie remnant in St. Louis and local attempts to remove invasives and exotics. Both are some quick, pleasant news stories for a change! Enjoy!
