Ain't gardening great?

Today, in The Baltimore Sun, Mary Gail Hare highlights an urban gardening project with students from a local job-training center for at risk youth and the Samaritan Women home in Baltimore County. From the article:

About 8 acres of the property are suited to farming, with the rest of the land wooded. Initial plans call for planting about 3 acres of vegetables this year, everything from arugula to zucchini. Allert will donate the produce to area soup kitchens, food pantries and homeless shelters. As the garden expands, she envisions individual plots for residents of the surrounding community.
