I’m a dork geek.

Wow, I thought I was a dork.

You all know that.

If you didn’t know that from before, read pretty much any other post and you’ll probably figure it out. I mean, I mentioned that what bothered me most about Eclipse was Bella’s hair. Do I really need to prove my case any further?

Anyway, not really the point of this post. Today I am geeking out over a magazine I found at work the other night. I was at the back cash wrap, which means that I was in charge of recovery of the news stand section at Barnes & Noble.

That’s when I came across this little beauty…

Seriously, a quarterly magazine dedicated to urban farming and sustainable living! Do you know how perfect that is? Tons of information, and yet it comes out only often enough that I will actually read it all and take it in, if it were monthly I have no doubt that there would be a lot that I would miss.

Side note about spending money and finance issues, I did not actually purchase this magazine. I believe that I will in fact purchase this issue, and ask for someone to buy me a two year subscription for my birthday! Actually, there are back issues (only three counting the current one that goes off the shelf on August 2) available here and it would be super awesome if someone would buy the first two and a subscription for me. Oh wait, it looks like for the most part they are actually pdf files. If only I could get them in print!

Back to the point.

I really want to get into some form of urban gardening. If I could find a way to make a community garden work I would love to start that up, and tonight I found a few awesome websites to point me in the right direction of being able to do just that. RebelTomato seems the most helpful, plus it’s got a fun name!

I also posted on Facebook asking about interest in community gardening. I’ve got a few people within 10 blocks from me who might be interested, so I think I’m going to do what I can to start something up. Right now it will probably just be dinner with the friends who are interested, maybe bike rides to check out possible lots to look into, and then flyers around the neighborhood? I dunno, maybe I’ll look into starting a website to generate interest and direct questions as well.

I’m not sure why I would want to take on something like this when I have a whole bunch of stuff going on, but I’m kind of loving the idea, so I’ll see just how taxing it is before I decide to forget about it!

If you have any knowledge of community gardening or have found some particularly helpful websites, please let me know. Maybe I’ll have you over for dinner next year when we’ll actually have a decent harvest!
