MLK Jr. and Community Gardening

This Grist article on community gardening and the legacy of MLK Jr. is a great observation and reflection on what the truest sense of Dr. King’s mission was and how that can be tied to something as simple as community gardening.

“King often rhapsodized about what he called the “beloved community” — a society based on the principles of brotherhood and reconciliation. Community gardening brings that vision from field to plate. Alone it can’t save our food system — or save us from our food system. But I can’t think of a more promising place to start than outside in the field with neighbors.”
