Today, community gardening appears to be a viable solution to a number of problems. For one, we can expect food costs to soar -- with 1) energy costs rising,2) the environmental impact of conventional agribusines taking its toll on available resources, and3) transportation costs for food that travels an average of 1200+ miles to reach the supermarket.
