In response to Pic and a Word Challenge #8: Desert

Author: Dancing Echoes

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path.

  1. <grin> The first time I’ve ever seen “food desert” applied to an urban landscape. Very clever. : )

    I supposed a community garden is an oasis, then. 😉

  2. Yes! But I already did a post about that (using the word oasis) a few weeks ago for the prompt “Nature”. If I had known about your prompt I might have waited to use it :). I did not make up the term “food desert”. It has gathered more attention in the last few years with the recognition that folks living in our inner cities often don’t have access to fresh fruits and vegetables. Processed food and “junk food” is cheaper than fresh food too. Not to mention that many kids don’t get to see how food is grown. These community and school gardens have gained more traction and I was glad to see several in Chicago a few weeks ago.

  3. Kewl. Thanks for the insight. : )

    Community gardens have also been popping up all over Vancouver the past few years.
