Just came across a social networking site dedicated to campus gardens and kitchen gardeners.
Their definition of the kitchen gardener is:
« They are self-reliant seekers of ‘the Good Life’ who have understood the central role that home-grown and home- cooked food plays in one’s well-being. By seeking an active role in their own sustenance, they are modern-day participants in humankind’s oldest and most basic activity, offering a critical link to our past and positive vision for our future. »
Yeah, I’m pretty sure that’s where we’re coming from.
