Meat Free Mondays

San Francisco joins communities across the world in observing Meat-Free Mondays.  Too bad no one told us. Apparently back in April the Board of Supervisors unanimously approved legislation declaring the first day of the week meat-free Mondays, now known as Vegetarian Day or Veg Day. Supposedly, the legislation urges “all restaurants, grocery stores and schools to offer a greater variety of plant-based options to improve the health of San Francisco residents and visitors and to increase the awareness of the impact a green diet would be on our planet.” Consider awareness. . . unaffected. This seems like something that would be plastered all over San Francisco buses, sign posts, and veg-friendly shops.  Did I miss the flier at the co-op?  Probably.  Nonetheless, just as banning plastic bags took hold (uh, sort of), I'm sure the wave of Meat-Free Monday observers is sure to swell and sweep the city by storm.  I'll let you know when the falafel shop steals all the Monday business from the burger shop downstairs.  Actually. . .  it's the same shop.  So maybe they are onto something after all. via: the sf examiner

Last Meal

I'm a television junkie and I recently watched an episode of King of the Hill in which Dale, Bill, Boomhauer and Khan get together to make what would be their last meal, if they knew they were going to be executed the next day.  I was thinking about this....what would my last meal be? A Japanese bento with tonkatsu, teriyaki chicken, tempura veg, various sushi, Grandma's green chile, and her black mole (mo-lay) and my Mom's rice......and some Ghiradelli dark chocolate. What would your last meal be? I think I want to get some friends together and do my own "Last Meal Party."....In time for Halloween.

Community Garden

Hello all, I was doing some work in the garden, weeding and harvesting some Veg when I had an idea. I thought "I wish my local community had a place where I could grow my own plants with everyone else that I know". Then I thought "Maybe I should set up 'my' own community garden!" It has since become my mission of the day (and hopefully the next few months or so) to try and figure out how to make this happen. But almost immediately I have run into many problems. I have managed to sort these problems into 4 sections: 1. Location 2. Price (renting or buying?) 3. Management 4.Resources (human AND natural) I think that time will not be too much of a problem, as the summer holidays are commencing soon which will bring me a great amount of free time. I know it's a big ask of you to think up any solutions/tactics that I can use for this project, but I know that it's been done before and documented as an 'Ible at least once. This is more of a question than a forum topic, so to bring the relevance levels to a happy medium I ask: What are your experiences of Community Gardens? What are your opinions of them? Thank you for your input,  -R-
