Gardens grow in many forms and are limited only by the imaginative resources in which they are rooted. From community hydroponic gardens, street-side moth interventions, and intensive food production on vacant land, gardens provide a gathering point for cooperative activity, food security, and civic improvement.
People notice the impact of climate change in their own backyards first as it is their most common point of intersection with the natural world. Value must be shifted closer to home creating re-investment in the local community. In the near future, economics will become more place-based and this will aid the re-establishment of more locally based food systems that begin with gardens.
