While looking for something else entirely, came across the Edible Schoolyard in Berkeley, California. What a fabulous idea - it may be something that's really well known in the US, but over here it's never made the headlines. It should.

Even though I only have a back yard, one of the best things is being able to grow food in it (stuff like herbs, courgettes, lettuces and chillies in the summer), and then use it in my cooking. It's a wonderful feeling to know that you're creating a meal with something that you've also grown and looked after. Even when we move and I no longer have an outside space, I'm going to investigate windowboxes - lettuces, salad greens, herbs - you can still grow all sorts. And it tastes so much better!
