Dear Reader ...

[View across spring wheat fields, Anhui Province, China]

Recently GrowCity passed the 10,000 pageview mark, and is now firmly on it's way to 11,000! This may be small fries to larger blogs, but I think it's a big deal for a niche-market blog like this one. And it makes me so happy to know that we are building a community of designers who care about agriculture, and/or non-designers who care about both design and ag.  If you'd like to help GrowCity continue to grow, consider passing it along to friends that would be interested, subscribing to posts by email or rss feed, listing it in your blogroll, or writing for us! 

And on that note, I'm also happy to announce that soon we'll be hearing regularly from a new member of the team, Daniel Tran, an architect by training, and a farm manager at the Center for Agroecology & Sustainable Food Systems at UC Santa Cruz. 

Finally, I'm heading out this week for a two week tour of the Pacific Northwest - from SF to Seattle. Have any food landscapes you think I should check out along the way? Please post them in the comments!

Thanks for reading!
