Plan For Community Garden Grows Out Of High Diabetes Rate

I work in the city of National City and have found plenty of places to eat healthy food and just about every fast food restaurant has a selection of healthy items. When are we going to put the onus on the public to make better decisions for themselves? Building a huge garden will only take away from places like local markets that are trying to keep their customers and do offer fresh produce. I've had plenty of fruits and vegetables from these stores, as well as Food for Less and they've always tasted just fine. I think this idea is a long shot and not the answer National City needs. The golf course provides a great recreational avenue and I've noticed supports the local high school golf teams. What happens if the garden fails, what becomes of the land then? Condos, strip mall or soccer fields? Not the vision for this reader.
