Community Gardens

A caller on our Charlotte Talks radio show mentioned community gardens here in Charlotte. Here's some more information about that.

The gardens are offered by Parks and Rec, and 10x10 foot plots can be rented for $3 a month or $25 a year. They feature improved soil, and some have a water supply on site. There are a number of locations, including:
- Little Sugar Creek Greenway
- Baxter Street Park
- Huntingtowne Farms Park
- McAlpine Creek Community Park
- Ramsey Creek Park
- Reedy Creek Park
- Winget Park

For more information, check out www.parkandrec.com or call 704-336-3854.

Our family is interested in starting a group for vegetarian families with children in the Charlotte area. We envision potluck dinners and cookouts for various holidays to start with. We could do more than that as we get together and organize. You can e-mail us at tikvah@bellsouth.net.

Hi Sally and Sara Kate,

Harlan Weikle's review of Veggie Revolution
on Savvy Vegetarian.

There's also a bit on SV Blog

And
Greek Tofu Salad
is in SV Recipes.

All interlinked and your picture in the review. I look forward to reading your book - would it be possible to get a review copy? I'd like to put in my 2 bits worth too!

Illustrating collective consciousness at work, I published an article on this topic just last week. Harlan sent the info about Veggie Revolution a couple of days later.

All the best,
