Talked with Baldwin Wallace College’s Professor Tom Sutton. He said the “greening” of Cleveland goes on. The city is just starting to develop a six-acre urban farm, complete with Amish organic farm consultants. Across the street from us is a one-acre urban farm that was developed over an old asphalt parking lot. (The farm coordinator for this was walking around today with a t-shirt that read: “Got Mulch?” There is also a good sprinkling of community gardens and farmers markets in Cleveland. And there is a number of Backyard Habitats as well, including ours. I often say on the campaign trail that when we get to the White House, we’re going to turn the entire front lawn into a perma-culture; while trying to inspire homeowners across the nation to do the same. Note: Professor Sutton teaches Political Science and I’ve talked in his class a couple times over the years. He asked me how the campaign was going. I replied: “Even though I’m the only one to declare at this point, the polls are showing I’m still behind.” He laughed.
