Thanks to Julie and Katherine for organizing the great tour of Macoun Marsh yesterday (last of this year's Urban Wild Tours).
Also, check out this absolutely fabulous Ted Talks video about the creation a local edible landscapes movement in a small town in England (Todmorden). It has inspired people to believe in the power of small scale change, and in their own power to "just do it". There are a number of great organizations helping to make this kind of thing happen in Ottawa, including via Just Food's Community Garden Network, COG's Growing Up Organic school gardens, and new to the scene, Hidden Harvest. Let's continue to expand the idea.
