"The Urban Food Revolution is Under Your Feet" by Greg Harman in the San Antonio Current features several people with SASL connections

Several San Antonio food activists (and members of San Antonio Sustainable Living) are featured in the San Antonio Current article, The Urban Food Revolution is Under Your Feet by Greg Harman which appeared in the Current's May 5, 2010 issue.

Leslie Provence, author of the San Antonio Food Policy Initiative, SASL member and presenter is talks about the food safety system and declining health of the population in general and young people specifically.

I don't remember if Sylvie Shurgot has made it to one of our meetings but she is in the Facebook group so I'll count her as a member.   In the article she explains how she came to establish the San Antonio Foodshed site which lists food producers within a forty mile radius of San Antonio.

Angela Hartsell, an SASL member and coordinator for Green Spaces Alliance explains the role of the group in establishing, maintaining and developing community gardens.

Even if so many people I know weren't in the article I would still find it interesting.  If you don't read the Current regularly nowadays you are missing some excellent reporting.

Congratulations to everyone who got the chance to get their green messages across to the public in print.
