A Little Trip to San Diego and Portland
July 30, 2010 § Leave a comment
Some news from our friends on the West Coast this week! First to sunny San Diego, where an art and design collaborative Set & Drift has created The Farm Proper – an urban farm in Barrio Logan built in abandoned grocery carts! We here at the Urban Truck Farm love to see new and inventive ways to grow food in the city. This certainly fits the bill! Trucks, grocery carts, the sky is the limit!
Now on to Portland – where my good friend Tricia Martin wrote a wonderful story about the Urban Truck Farm on her well-known and well-read food blog Eating is Art. Tricia is an excellent writer and blogger, a health and nutrition coach, a lover of food, and a fellow Urban Planning graduate from the University of Cincinnati like myself. It’s great that our paths have crossed in the urban agriculture world and she is doing exciting stuff up in Portland! Her food blog has received quite a bit of acclaim in the Northwest – so we really love the mention! Thanks so much, T!
More big news to come for the Urban Truck Farm…. stay tuned over the next couple weeks!!
