If people can golf, they can garden


By Letter to the Editor on May 14, 2020.

I drove by the community garden location and was surprised that not one person was to be seen digging, planting, weeding, etc. Why not?

The powers that be must have ruled that it would be unsafe and dangerous for folks to be outside in the sunshine and getting healthy exercise. Never mind that wholesome, nutritious and tasty food could be produced at harvest time for their families.

The epidemic we seem to be having is a pandemic of fear and control! What is the harm in planting a garden?

If golf courses are going to be open, for the name of common sense, open the garden site! Do we need to march on city hall with our hoes and shovels?

sounds like the making of a revolution with shovels and hoes. we may have to put them on a gun registry as restricted weapons
