Here’s a sneak peek what to look forward to this weekend, straight from our friends at Groovy Green:

This Sunday the New York Times Green Magazine will premiere. What can you expect to see in it?

URBAN FARMING – On a mere one-fifth of an acre in suburban Pasadena, Calif., Jules Dervaes and his family harvest 6,000 pounds and 350 separate varieties of fruits, vegetables and edible flowers annually. “This is our form of protest,” Dervaes, 60, says. “And this is our form of survival.” Exclusively Online – Living (Mostly) Off the Grid: A video about a family living the green life in the middle of Pasadena, Calif.

    Here’s an article about an entire village that is growing their own food rather than buying from the supermarket! (Fans of “The Good Life” will love this!)

    you are an inspiration! i grew up on an urban farm in san diego county and want so badly to return to that lifestyle. right now i just have tomato, zuccini, chile & herb plants in the flower bed behind my apartment, but someday, someday i hope to model a much larger space after your own. keep up the good work!

    Fantastic about the NYT article! Your message will reach a *large* audience there. What’s most convincing about your message is that it’s not just words, but a stunning example of what can be done. Yay, keep it up!
