"The purpose of the Little Rock Urban Farming blog is to engage the community in a discussion about food security and public health and how urban farming is a creative and intelligent way to address these interdependent issues. We can beautify our urban landscapes while providing our communities with healthy great tasting food all while increasing the value of surrounding properties and improving the quality of life."
My cousin, Chris Hiryak, founded Little Rock Urban Farming, the terrific organization mentioned above (shown with the logo I designed for him!) Chris came in town a couple of weeks ago to visit and brought me the most bountiful basket of fresh grown produce I have ever seen! The amazingly generous gift included fresh tomatoes, tomatillos, eggplant, peppers, cucumbers, etc. PLUS fig and pear preserves, home-made tomato sauce, pickled hot peppers and much, much more! We had an awesome weekend and (with a gift like that) I'll welcome him to visit anytime!
