Vancouver City Hall Garden - 1 Calgary City Hall Garden - 0

Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson got his hands dirty planting wheat at the opening of the plots at city hall.

And the city is in good company -- both the White House and Buckingham Palace have recently started growing food in gardens on the state grounds.

Back in Calgary, the mayor's response is to deny the existence of an urban agriculture movement in North America. He also includes a dig at the CFPC... "They are only a small group," states the Mayor. A small group with big ideas, the kind of ideas that grow community in an urban setting.

*Editor's note* 100% of Calgarians consume food products making us the largest group in Calgary...

Write him... plant the seeds of change.
