Hi Gretchen,

Sure, I can explore that--what exactly are they doing in that board? I have been working on "beautifying" vegetable garden by growing both food and flowering plants that might be more amendable to the reluctant people. I think that people tend to associate the food producing gardens as unsightly and not at all pretty. It can be made to look pleasing to the eye by planting annual flowers in between the vegetable patches. This way we are practising polyculture--good against disease and pests and we get to nourish our bodies with the food and our mind with the flowers.
