The New York Times Magazine’s green Issue includes these garden-related goodies:
- In the article "Act" there’s information about a "Compost Feast".
- Under "Live" you’ll find the imperative to "Plant More Trees", a piece about "Urban Farming", and a nice mention of Project Laundry List (not actually about gardening but the nonprofit is a friend of GardenRant).
- Michael Pollan’s "Why Bother?" is long but at the very bottom of page 3 he starts to make the case for gardening, beginning with this: "Measured against the Problem We Face, planting a garden sounds pretty
benign, I know, but in fact it’s one of the most powerful things an
individual can do — to reduce your carbon footprint, sure, but more
important, to reduce your sense of dependence and dividedness: to
change the cheap-energy mind." Keep reading on page 4.
- In "Greener Pastures," TV host Bill Nye reports having cut his water usage in HALF by switching from lawn to vegetables. Really? Now you know I’m pro-vegetable but I bet he could have achieved the same savings by just letting the damn lawn go dormant in the summer.
- In "Bugged Out," we learn that Isabella Rossellini crawls around her garden observing bug sex.
