Booo Food Desert. Yay Urban Farm!

A friend sent me this link to a news story about the original “food desert”; Altgeld Gardens. No fresh food in sight, just a liquor store. Sad, sad.


Derrion Crawford is the manager of an urban farm in Altgeld. He taught community workers how to compost, build a hoop house, plant crops and be sustainable. I really love stories like this and hope other communities get inspired by what’s going on here. For those of you too lazy to read, the article is narrated in a movie on the site as well.

Enjoy and thanks C!

Arctic Apples

Have you heard about these apples? The are genetically modified so they won’t turn brown after slicing them. As a scientist I’m annoyed by things like this. Don’t we as a profession have better things we could be doing? Congratulations…you’ve cured the world of brown apple slices. BFD.
