    I did not know that worms could be called a "crop", as for the amaranth, do you make flour hrom it?

    Hi, as I was browsing I came across your page and noticed that you are a writer. I am graduating next May with an English degree, and plan to write, emphasizing traveling and sustainability. I would love to get any advice from you in this field or suggestions on next steps. Thanks for your time!

    Hi, I am in Miami but my daughter lives in Alpharetta I visit her often. Do you know the location of the farmers market there? I would like her to get into eating organic. I am going to check out your site, and you might want to check out UrbanOasisProject.org
    I love that we are getting such rich resources and encouragement such as this magazine.

    Congrats on being farmer of the day. From your last blog entry it sounds like Atlanta is really moving forward in community gardening. In my city most all of the community gardens are on church properties. The churches have really stepped up and offered extra property to the public, not just church members, to grow many different things.

    I loved your last post in your personal blog. The tour of the Clinton Community Garden was great. I think it's a wonderful thing that NYC would have places like that.

    It is nice to have a magazine geared toward urban gardening isn't it?

    Hi everyone! I love that all us urban ag folks finally have a magazine we can call our own.

    I write about all aspects of sustainability at www.foodshedplanet.com, and frankly, I see lots of these topics covered in Urban Farm as well.

    It's nice to be home.
