Dear Kitchen Gardener,

I’m sorry for the flurry of emails over the past few days, but I hope you won’t mind a small piece of good news to start your day. I just spoke with the property management company handling the 8-unit rental property where Rosie and Mary live and the property owner has agreed to build a new raised bed vegetable garden for them and the other tenants next spring. It’s a small victory, but hopefully one that will motivate local and federal decision-makers to make sure that others living in subsidized housing can enjoy the benefits of home-grown foods too.

Thanks again for your help and support,
