    Thanks for the beautiful pics and inspiring words. I like this:

    Stepping away from my frustration with national politics, I take heart in the ways that I can personally influence change.
    I just got done reading Will Allen's The Good Food Revolution, coming out really hopeful how much change we can bring about through grassroots community efforts around growing our own food. Incidentally, Michelle Obama adopted Mr. Allen as one of her liaisons in rebuilding low income minority communities around food. She's visited Growing Power several times, so she knows what's up. Unfortunately, the realities of Washington are often different than in our communities across the country, so a lot of these amazing ideas and projects get slowed down by the ignorance in "the bubble." But projects like your own prove that there's so much we can do on our own even in the absence of national policy, so that when the politicians finally come around, we're ready for them.
