Growing Food in Unexpected Places

Listen to this NPR story about Chris Castro, who is turning the “perfectly manicured lawns” in his Orlando neighborhood into “mini farms” with his program, Fleet Farming. Chris asks his neighbors to donate a portion of their lawns, which will be farmed by volunteers who ride from farm to farm, or “farmlette” as they call them, on bicycles. This farming is all done within a mile of the local farmers’ market. Currently, there is a wait list of 300 residents in the Orlando area waiting to donate their lawns to grow food.  

 
This program shows that with a little creativity, sustainable, locally grown food can be accomplished anywhere. Get involved with Fleet Farming and support the movement!

Nelson's 9/21/18 Update

Hope all of you are doing well. We are introducing today a new newsletter format. We hope you find this easier to navigate. With this format, you can see our content at a glance and decide what you want to read. For this week’s newsletter, I would like to draw your attention to a website launched by Dr. Jamie Koufman. She has an interesting story, which you can see under the “About Us” tab at DrCampbell4Nobel.org. Dr. Koufman launched this site to draw public attention to the idea that my father should be nominated for the Nobel Prize in Medicine.
