Denverites are making gardens as if our food supply might run out tomorrow, according to Westword. There’s even a garden going in at 15th and California in downtown Denver.

I have to say, I’m not so crazy about this law that requires people arrested for felonies to give a DNA sample. I think it should be required only of convicted felons.

This article gives some information about how results of DNA tests will be expunged if the accused is acquitted.

    I love the concept of a bartering for produce! It seems we are truly going back to our roots, and the poor economy is encouraging us to become creative.
