Accessing fresh fruits and vegetables

Victory Peace Garden at Valley of Peace Lutheran
It was great to read an article, "More farmers markets take food stamps" this morning.  Many of our urban neighborhoods are fresh fruits and vegetables deserts.  Most of the local stores city stores and gas stations offer only pop, candy and highly processed food.  Great to see this effort being supported by the Obama administration.

Yesterday I volunteered with another member of our church to build a fence for the raised bed vegetable garden that the local 4-H group is developing on the church property.  Sorry rabbits, it is hoped that many of the vegetables will go to people in need through the PRISM food shelf.
