Monday at the Movies

Wendell Berry says:

We have everything to gain from urban agriculture. But that’s not farming. Louisville, Kentucky, for example, is not going to feed itself from gardening alone. They need milk and meat—things that you can’t produce in the city. Every time someone in Louisville plants something to eat, we’re better off out here. Urban gardeners know something of the biology, the art, and the chanciness of growing food, which makes it possible for them to imagine the life and work of farming out in the countryside. From this and the interest in local food, you get an urban agrarianism that I think is simply indispensable.

  1. Central Texas Gardener is one of the best channels on YouTube. This is one of very best reasons to fund and defend Public Television!
    I can recommend watching (yes – I do encourage binge watching here!) all of these wonderful people around Central Texas that have transformed their yards into happy environments for food, insects, animals – and so many are drought-resistant!
