Recent articles that mention Ginkgo

Each year, at least one journalism student will approach members of the garden to conduct interviews and even film documentaries. We always try to oblige, answering questions and striking action poses with various farming implements: we enjoy showing people around the garden, and interviews give us a chance to refine our elevator pitches and remember why we come out every weekend.

We rarely see the results of these interviews, because most of them are apparently part of student projects; so it is nice to receive links to finished articles, such as the following:

  • In the April edition of CityMag, Rian Ervin describes the work of a number of community gardens, including Ginkgo. Ervin spoke with the Two Daves.
  • One of the Two Daves was also featured in Laura Mihelich and Anuja Vaidya's article in the March Medill Reports.
