A great article.

This is already being done in various places around the country. Even in places with only one short growing season.

Why aren't we doing this in Houston?

We can have year round, non-stop food production, even durring the type of drought situation we have been having by using the right designs and the right mix of plants from different parts of the world.

There are lots of ways to get more of this happening in Houston.

Grow some food in your own yard or patio.

Start a food and habitat garden started at your childrens school or your church or your community center or in an esplanade in your neighborhood.

Work with other like-minded people and organizations to learn by doing and help make this availible to others.

One group I have been working with, that also believes in Food Everywhere! is:

The Last Organic Outpost

What ever you choose: Get started!
