ALERT: Vote up SA urban gardens

Greg Harman

Before you break out of your cubicle and pop in your Twilight caps or whatever, donate a helpful mouse click or two to San Antonio's Southwest Workers Union to help them grab some competitive grant funds from Brighter Planet.



From SWU's application, we read that Bexar County was "recently ranked 211 out of 221 Texas counties for accessibility to healthy food and green spaces. The creation of an urban garden network can both revitalize unused land as well as provide healthy food choices and increase the food security of local families."



As much fun as cabbage bowling was a few weeks back, we would love to see some zucchini pins added and multiple lanes lined in lettuces. Help dismantle San Antonio’s “food deserts” with this simplest of gestures. They’re down by like 60 votes now, gente, and voting ends next Tuesday. So, hit it now. And remember, this is one contest where you really can vote twice, so make ‘em count.
