On balance are weeds in every crack in a polluted city neighborhood helping air quality by giving oxygen and trapping co2 and pollution? Should all the weeds in every conceivable corner be pulled, or do they help with urban storm water runoff? Don’t weeds have a bad rap? After all they are the ultimate survivors and these survivor qualities could be studied, captured genetically, and transferred to useful plants. Should I thank a weed or weed-trees when I see them, or think of them as enemies and pull them up?

I think that’s such a wonderful concept — reproducing a forest habitat using plants that provide food for humans.

THE POWERS THAT BE OKed A CITY CODE ALLOWING ALL HOMEOWNERS TO USE THE CITY PARKWAY TO GROW FOOD. THIS IS WISE FOR SERVERAL REASONS. IT SAVES WATER AND THUS ENERGY OVER TRADITIONAL GRASS AND THE FOOD MILES ARE LESS. ALSO THERE IS RESERVE FOOD IN CASE OF A CALIF. EARTHQUAKE;AND THE FOOD GARDEN DOES NOT NEED TO BE MOWED USING GAS OR ELECTRICITY GENERATED BY COAL. ALSO THE ECO-PSYCHOLOGY POSITIVES ARE GREAT. THE NEIGHBOR KIDS NOW KNOW WHERE THEIR FOOD IS GROWN IN AN ORGANIC ENVIRONMENT; AND THIS PRODUCES ECO-FRIENDLY ADULTS LIKE ME AS I GREW UP ON A POTATO FARM IN SOUTH ONTARIO, CALIF. NANCY YOU ARE THE FUTURE INDEED. THANKS. DR. KAMANSKY, FORMER CAPTAIN, US ARMY PS THE ARMED FORCES ARE NOW GOING ECO-FRIENDLY ON MANY ARMY BASES

Dear Mrs. Grundahl,

Nice article ! As an experience environmentalist, could you write an article about damage of the forests in the earth? You have the steps of how’s arrange the plants, so you are fitting should create our forests like as you did. I am frustrating with the several its damaged, because our leaders are busy with their crony business, not public opinion…. Thank you!
