But while I'm thinking about it, maybe it has something to do with this?
"Most food in Russia comes from backyard gardens"
- I wish we could say that about America... but I don't think the "eco-village" movement mentioned in the article is the driving force behind the fact that in 2004 over 50% of Russia's agricultural output came from backyard gardens!
Interesting to think about! As if I didn't have enough things running through my mind...
