    Goochland farmers help residents in 'food deserts'

    Goochland farmers help residents in 'food deserts' | Richmond Times-Dispatch

    What a great idea! It's hard to imagine such an unfamiliarity with fresh & wholesome foods as these people experience and I hope this endeavor remains successful.

    I know of a place in Yorkshire where they have gone further.
    Incredible Edible Todmorden

    It' seems such a simple yet clever idea.
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    Wow, sounds like another project that started out small with a minimal amount of volunteers and has taken off big time! In their case, they aren't just improving eating habits and education but they're beautifying the area in the process. I love the idea of grassroots efforts ... there's power in them.
