Time.com has a new story about urban farming, and you know I love it when big media shares info about urban farming! They also include this photo eassay about urban farms around the world…if this world were a tag cloud, Bay Area would be in like 96 pt font, and then there’s everywhere else. A couple mentions of New York, a little bit o’ Japan, London, Bangkok and….Massachusetts.

Ok. So the world is a much bigger place than that, and I’m shocked that Time couldn’t find some way to highlight agriculture in the sprawling cities in Africa and Latin America to include in their “world.”

Just to balance this oversight,  I urge you to make a donation to this cool project in South Africa through my friend’s org, Global Giving. $42 dollars for a whole vegetable garden in a township along with training in indigineous farming techniques!
