Local Victory Garden Initiative and local food get coverage

Karen Herzog has been writing a very good food column in the Milwaukee Journal Sentine. Her latest column discusses the Shorewood-based Victory Garden initiative, which, in the interst of disclosure, I have recently become involved with. Herzog also touches on south side gardening efforts, which reminds me, I have been sitting on a post about Sheridan’s CafĂ© in Cudahy. Look for that in just a moment.

Even closer to home, Anodyne Moments, my little rag tag band of urban gardeners has gotten a mention in the January 30, 2009 entry for the Bay View Compass business column “Ebb & Flow.” We meet every Tuesday morning at Anodyne on KK, and this coming Tuesday Feb. 3, we will be joined by Catherine Alexander from the All Peoples Church on 2nd & Clarke, who will share her experience with having a garden to grow food for the neighborhood there at the church. And that is something we’re keenly interested in doing down here in Bay View, as well as in Harambee.

  1. Why not enroll in an introductory English class while at UW-Milwaukee. Your piece above is riddled with run on sentences, dangling modifiers and numerous spelling errors. I find it hard to believe you successfully wrote for any paper based on this story. Also, you worked as a computer programmer and you have yet to master the spell check button?

  2. Ms. Gruber,

    It is my pleasure to inform you that I am in the capstone history course at UWM, and my history writing has been hailed by my professors as being outstanding. Yes, the above post is (or was) riddled with typos, but, dear lady, this is nothing if not a blog. So what if my keyboard or fingers were not cooperating that day? Since when was it a requirement for anyone to make a cognizant comment on a blog? Obviously for you, that was not the case.
