Sneak Peek: Andrea Bellamy of Heavy Petal’s Garden

Today over on Re-Nest I put together a sneak peek of Andrea Bellamy’s wonderful Vancouver, British Columbia gardens. Andrea writes on her blog Heavy Petal and is the author of the new book Sugar Snaps and Strawberries: Simple Solutions for Creating Your Own Small-Space Edible Garden. I feel so lucky to be friends with her and am thrilled to have the opportunity to show off her amazing gardens (she has 4 of them!). Perhaps the coolest thing Andrea has going on is the Lawns to Loaves project. She got together a group of gardeners and they took over an abandoned lot owned by the City of Vancouver and planted a wheat field. This fall they will harvest the wheat, thresh it, grind it with a bicycle-powered mill and then make pizza with the flour. Head on over to Re-Nest to see the full tour ¬†and read Andrea’s tips on urban gardening!

    A Bicycle powered grain mill.

    That is love right there. Absolute love for pizza and keeping it organic.

    If people really thought everyday about how much work goes into food production, I don’t think they would complain so much about food prices….!
