New Year & Seattle Part 2

January 7, 2012

Happy New Year!

2011 was an amazing year for urban farming and food awareness, we expect that 2012 will only bring more.  So much can change in a very short period of time with enough momentum and enthusiasm. Laws are being changed in cities across the country to make food growing, animal raising, bee keeping and small scale sales of these things accessible to so many more people. Take front yard gardening for example, more and more people are removing their lawns and proudly planting fruit and veg. In some places this is illegal or was until recently.  Taking it further out into the public sphere, a few years ago the city of Seattle made it free and easier to plant in the parking strips (the area between the curb and the sidewalk).  Now we see them in every neighborhood across the city.  Take a look at the photos we took when we were there last year:

What changes happened in your town in 2011?  What would you like to see change in 2012?

Also in 2011 we finished the assembly edit of From the Ground Up!  We will be working hard all year to get all pieces in place, animations, music, archival footage to get the movie finished.  If you would like to donate or help in anyway let us know – ftgumovie@gmail.com
