july comes to a close

East Village is loaded with secret gardens (well they are not so secret, here is an interactive map) – we enjoyed a nice stroll thru the 9th St. Community Garden this evening. And while this photo isn't of the garden itself, it is from inside the playhouse in the middle of this urban retreat – felt like a perfect depiction of the day.

Back this NYC!

This might be the best $15 bucks I've spent this month!

New York Compost: Connecting the City to the Soil Back Project.
NY compost want to use low-cost cargo bicycles to collect food scraps from restaurants, containerize them, and deliver them to farmers who would be in the city for farmer's markets and CSA drop-offs. The farmers would then back-haul the food scraps to their farms and process them into compost. Thus creating less waste and better soil - win, win!

They are hoping to launch a pilot program in mid-August to test the viability of this model.
