I stumbled across this website and found it very interesting. There are some great articles contrasting urban and rural food production, culture and living. We have fantasized many times about relocating to a rural area, but ultimately we would miss the culture and friends here in the city. With gas prices rising I can rarely see my best friend who lives in Powell. Isolation would not be good for me or my family. Community and Backyard gardening has given me the opportunity to grow my own food, meet new people, co-create beautiful greenspaces and learn more about myself. I have so much more to learn about food production and self reliance.
