MNN has a great bunch of local correspondents who write about local environmental happenings, natural resources, green businesses and local foods. Every once in a while, I like to point out some of the great pieces they’re writing about gardening and farming.
When you’re done reading these informative pieces by our local correspondents, spend a little time checking out some of the correspondents who write about other topics.
Urban Farm at the Battery provides vital, unique experience for kids — Colleen from New York reports on a first-hand agricultural, environmental experience for Manhattan school children.
Community gardens: A place for growth in Old Pueblo — Colleen from Arizona highlights a Tucson gardening organization that enhances community food security with neighborhood food production plots.
Largest agricultural high school in the U.S. cultivates future farmers — Lori from Pennsylvania introduces us to W. B. Saul High School of Agricultural Sciences in Philadelphia that's helping to fill the need for farmers.
Enjoy your weekend!
