Episode 57: Lord, Lord, Lord

It was hard to imagine focusing on just one urban gardener in New Orleans… so we didn’t.  This video tells the story of several different New Orleans residents who came back to the city after the storm to rebuild and start making food in the city’s abandoned lots.  And you can’t tell a New Orleans story without music, thankfully one of our farmers happened to play in the Treme Brass Band!

    The best episode yet!…. for me, you’ve really captured the essence of what the food movement should be about…. health, taste, community, education etc

    Being a European I don’t know much about the Katrina disaster other than what was was shown on the news at the time but from what I can see here the peoples determination for renewal in the face of such adversity is quite inspirational.

    If you could make the Tweet button share something more compelling you would get more visitors to this page. I was in a hurry and tried to use it but it doesn’t have a real call to action or your Twitter account or anything that would compel anyone’s followers to want to come see what the Tweet is about.

    I’ll end up writing one for you, but most won’t.
