Lovable Edible Gardens

   Building a place that nourishes people is made much easier if the edible gardens are also lovable. Vegetable gardens that don't rise above the lovability level of a laundry room aren't likely to be tolerated in a publicly visible location. I'm starting this database with the intent of collecting names and locations of lovable edible gardens. If you know of one, please email me and let me know. Tell me precisely where it's located so I can map it. I will credit every tipster (unless you want to be anonymous.) If you want me to link your name to your organization's website, please email me the URL as well… thanks in advance, and please keep those tips coming!
