Boy, did my cynicism dine well on that article.
Pie in the sky. Never addressed some simple facts:
1. How do you grow veggies in December in NYC? Even here in FL there is a veggie winter, except ours is in the summer!
2. Most people do not and will not want to grow some of their food. Period.
3. It takes a huge, intentional investment in tools, time, and knowledge to grow food. It's seldom truly economical compared to buying food in the store.
4. They didn't mention that possibly we should cut the grain and sugar subsidies and give the money to the Broccoli Cartel. Crap food is cheap in a large part because of subsidies.
I'd say "Mi dos centavos" but that's not my native tongue. <grin>
