Monday night the movie, ‘Truck Farm’ presented by Whole Foods is about people in New York who wanted a garden in New York City and didn’t have a place to put one so they planted it in the back of a truck! Afterwards Homegrown New Mexico will have a panel discussion on community gardening. Come see our own ‘truck farm’ which will be on display at the movie.

So this is a real thing!? I read about a similar project in Milan recently (http://www.smart-urban-stage.com/blog/future-of-the-city/crowded-cities/), which looks a bit sleeker, maybe, but otherwise serves the same purpose. I do think the inclusion of streetlights and Wifi hotspot (to unclog the air of Wifi waves…) is a neat aspect. Seems to make so much sense, too, for urban areas lacking in any kind of open area (that could potentially be reclaimed for gardening, for example). Cool stuff!
