Vilsack Thinks Weavers Way is Awesome
How do I know this? Well, Ag Sec Vilsack spoke today at the annual Community Food Security Conference in Des Moines, IA. The WHO Farm attended and twittered the following:
Vilsack: a Philly grocer helped local schoolkids grow tomatoes in school garden, then sold them @ grocery store. Economic stimulus!
I confirmed with the WHO Farm that Vilsack was indeed talking about Weavers Way school garden project with Martin Luther King Jr High School. As soon as I have exact quotes, I'll post them -- and I'd point out to Vilsack that the MLK garden project is very much in the present tense

Of course, I've been happily buying the fruits of their collective labor for a while -- but its nice to see the co-op's urban farming/school garden efforts getting attention from the nation's agriculture chief.
