Lawns

I rediscovered this book published 2008; it is about the tyranny of front lawns in the US and the environmental disaster caused by the huge overuse of fertilisers and pesticides. It includes a piece by Michael Pollan about his father’s reluctance to conform.

It got me thinking about the new lock down food growers, the frantic activity from March to May and now the quiet. With a lot of talk about Brexit and borders in 2021 there are more urgent issues around food security that need to be addressed. More later.
