One person’s garbage is another’s edible garden, at least in San Dego’s Barrio Logan. KTLA reports on the neighborhood’s budding cart-garden, the budding project of local underground artists converting stray shopping carts into produce planter’s overflowing with strawberries, carrots, squash, cucumber, tomatoes and quinoa. The project takes a page from Alice Waters by involving community members and school groups to help harvest and maintain its appearance, with the goal of teaching city-dwellers how healthy we can eat and how easy it is to grow our own. Founder Sean Kelly tells the news station, “Plants kind of know what to do if you give them something simple to start with.” Now how long before this trend hits L.A. and will it come from the street-art or slow-food activist community first? One thing is certain, we have enough orphaned shopping carts of our own to get someone started.
