what a wonderful world it would be....

slow food nation victory garden

This was the scene that greeted me as I made my way last Friday to day #1 of the ‘Food For Thought Speaker Series’. WOW!! Erected smack in front of San Francisco’s City Hall, this ornamental edible garden provided a striking juxtaposition to its stately civic backdrop. Created in collaboration with Victory Gardens 2008 (planted on the same site as the World War II Victory Gardens of 1943), Slow Food Nation Victory Garden featured a wide variety of heritage organic vegetables suited to the Bay Area microclimate, while also displaying the diversity of urban food production practices through a truly inspiring format. The garden was scheduled to be harvested at the end of last (Labour Day) weekend. The produce was to be donated to those with limited access to healthy organic produce via local food banks and meals programs.
