Hardly. There will always be racism. I could say if more whites acted like this guy there would be less racism.... doesnt make sense either, does it?
In reality, the city plot or community lot garden has been around since the ghetto... and they have been basically destroyed with zoning issues and
vandalism/theft. Just like those white gardens
There are a plethora of books and articles concerning the "ghetto garden" and urban gardening..
and some are written by blacks for blacks.. to get them into the idea of self sufficiency and addressing the particular community issues.One of the
books I have was written in the late 60's... and invaluable. This isnt a white only domain for Gods sake.
Someone mentioned permaculture
LOVE IT!! The neighbors werent real happy when I started doing this, but as time went on... my permacultured edibles
were more maintained and beautiful than their annual beds... and now our neighbors are making small gardens and some attempts at permaculture.
share... everything from seeds to books.. to help work if they dont know what theyre doing. Many positives come out of it. Just DO IT.. see where it
